Report: Texans keep Danny Barrett as running backs coach
If there is no malfunction, why undertake corrective measures?
That is the strategy the Houston Texans are deploying with their running back coach position.
According to Aaron Wilson from KPRC-TV, the Texans are retaining Danny Barrett as their running backs coach, bringing back the 61-year-old for his sixth season with Houston.
The Texans had a promising season with the run game in 2022 with the emergence of fourth-rounder Dameon Pierce, who tallied 939 yards and four touchdowns through 13 games. The rookie was third in the NFL among the 2022 draft class for rushing yards.
Pierce was also the first back to have 900-plus rushing yards for Houston since 2019 when Carlos Hyde hit the mark en route to 1,080 yards on the season.
Houston bringing back Barrett is another Texans Wire prediction nailed regarding coach DeMeco Ryans’ staff.
