Texans Bill Kollar Inducted into Senior Bowl HOF

Houston Texans defensive line coach Bill Kollar has been inducted into the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame on Thursday Night in Mobile, Alabama. Kollar has been with the Texans since 2009 and is widely considered one of the top defensive line coaches in the NFL


This was the press release from the Senior Bowl Website:


Bill Kollar (1974 Senior Bowl)

The MVP of the 1974 game was a first-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals. Kollar played eight seasons for the Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before starting a coaching career that has now spanned three decades.

The Montana State graduate is in his sixth year with the Houston Texans, currently serving as the assistant head coach/defensive line coach. He has coached the defensive line in 24 of his 25 seasons on an NFL sideline.

During his first two seasons with the Texans, Kollar directed the defensive line to the two best run stopping seasons in club history, and the defensive unit also registered at least 30 sacks in three consecutive seasons – another franchise record.

“Bill was the MVP of the 1974 game and has now become the MVP of defensive line coaches in the NFL over the past 25 years,” Savage said.

Kollar also coached the defensive line with the Falcons, Rams and Bills.
