Houston Texans president Jamey Rootes will be resigning from the team in the coming weeks, which leaves another void in leadership the club will have to fill after addressing the general manager and coaching vacancies in January.

Chairman and CEO Cal McNair is confident they will be able to build upon the rudiments of success Rootes laid in his tenure with the club from 2000-21 — essentially the entire existence of the franchise.

“We will now build upon this foundation and move forward with a bold and unwavering commitment to winning championships, creating memorable experiences for our fans, and doing great things for Houston,” McNair said.

According to a statement from the Texans, the club will start a search for a new president immediately, and it will include, “a diverse slate of candidates,” that will also include internal candidates from the business side of the Texans.
