The Houston Texans continue to add to new coach David Culley’s coaching staff.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Texans have hired former Los Angeles Chargers quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton for the same job on Culley’s staff.

Hamilton was influential in helping develop rookie quarterback Justin Herbert, who completed 396 passes on 595 attempts for 4,336 passing yards, 31 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and a 98.3 passer rating through 15 starts.

The 46-year-old was also the Indianapolis Colts’ offensive coordinator from 2013-15, and was Andrew Luck’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Stanford in 2011.

Hamilton was the coach and general manager for the DC Defenders of the XFL before the league suspended operations last season during the lockdowns.

The Texans currently have quarterbacks Deshaun Watson and Josh McCown under contract. Houston is also seeing if they can add McCown as a member of the coaching staff.
