Stan Hixon Coming with O’Brien to Houston

According to Audrey Snyder of Penn Live, Bill O’Brien will be bringing Penn State’s wide receiver and assistant head coach Stan Hixon. Hixon came with O’Brien in 2012 and has spent 31 seasons in the college and professional coaching scene.

Hixon has coached wide receivers for the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins, LSU and Georgia Tech. He spent time with O’Brien at Georgia Tech before joining O’Brien at Penn State, and will be with him once again in Houston.

He has been tied to the two season stretch current Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson has had where he put up impressive numbers that made him an All American. Hixon has also coached the likes of Stevie Johnson (Bills), Santana Moss (Redskins) and Antwaan Randle-El during his time in the NFL.

With Hixon coming to Houston, it looks like the first piece of the offensive staff has fallen into place for the Texans.
