Romeo Crennel Agrees to a Three Year Deal with the Texans

It was confirmed today from multiple sources that the Houston Texans have agreed to a three-year deal for Romeo Crennel to be the new defensive coordinator. Crennel agreed deal will pay him over $7 million over the next three seasons, including the $3.5 million from his final year owed from the Kansas City Chiefs.

This will mark the 4th time in his 44 years of coaching that Crennel will be the defensive coordinator of a NFL team. He has been the defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns (2000), New England Patriots (2001-2004), Kansas City Chiefs (2010-2011) and now with the Texans. Crennel made his mark with the Patriots winning three Super Bowls with New England as the man in charge of the defense. He also has two Super Bowl rings with the New York Giants in 1986 and 1990 under Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells.

It will be interesting to see the approach that Crennel takes with the defense, especially with some personnel issues. Crennel has been labeled as a two gap 3-4 scheme coach, but that could easily change to fit the current personnel he has on defense.

“RAC” has his work cut out for him in Houston, and getting a defense that can stop offenses in the red zone, get pressure on the quarterback and cause turnovers need to be the highest priority heading into 2014.
