Bobby Slowik and Jerrod Johnson will stay with the Houston Texans for the 2024 season, bolstering the team’s offensive strategy and continuity.
Houston Texans Secure Key Offensive Leaders for 2024 Season
The Houston Texans have successfully retained Offensive Coordinator Bobby Slowik and Quarterbacks Coach Jerrod Johnson for the 2024 season, ensuring stability within their offensive leadership. This move comes after both coaches were pursued by other NFL teams for higher positions, highlighting their value and success within the league.
Bobby Slowik’s Continued Tenure
Bobby Slowik, after his first season with the Texans, has decided to remain with the team following several head coaching interviews. Slowik, who led the Texans to a 10-7 record and an AFC South title, has been recognized for transforming the team’s offense into one of the league’s most productive units. His leadership was instrumental in quarterback C.J. Stroud’s outstanding rookie season, with Stroud being a finalist for the 2023 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year after throwing for 4,108 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, and only five interceptions in 15 games.
Jerrod Johnson’s Commitment to the Texans
Jerrod Johnson, similarly, will continue his role as the Texans’ quarterbacks coach into the next season. Johnson, who had been considered for offensive coordinator positions by other teams, chose to remain in Houston, expressing his desire to keep working with head coach DeMeco Ryans, quarterback C.J. Stroud, and Slowik. His decision to stay emphasizes his commitment to the Texans’ current project and marks of loyalty and continuity for the team’s coaching staff.
Impact on the Texans
The retention of Slowik and Johnson is a significant boost for the Texans, especially following a season that saw significant improvements and a playoff berth for the first time since 2019. The team’s performance in the wild-card round, a 45-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns, highlighted the effectiveness of the Texans’ offense under their guidance. The decision of both coaches to stay with the team is a testament to their belief in the team’s direction and potential for further success.
As the Texans look ahead to the 2024 season, the continuity in their coaching staff, particularly on the offensive side, sets a solid foundation for further development and achievement. With Slowik and Johnson at the helm of the offense, Houston aims to build on their recent success and make deeper playoff runs in the future.
