Texans hiring Bobby Slowik as their offensive coordinator
The Houston Texans have found their new offensive coordinator, who will be paired with new head coach DeMeco Ryans in 2023.
NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero reported Sunday that the Texans are hiring former 49ers passing game coordinator Bobby Slovik as the team’s offensive coordinator.
Slovik, 35, spent two seasons as the 49ers’ offensive passing coordinator and has 11 seasons in the NFL. In San Francisco, Slovik worked as an offensive assistant and defensive quality control coach. Before being hired by the 49ers, Slovik also spent time in Washington as a defensive assistant and video assistant.
San Francisco had a powerful offense in which newcomers Christian McCaffrey and Brock Purdy flourished in their first seasons with the team. The 49ers ended their season in the NFC Championship game against the Eagles, where Purdy suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter and backup Josh Johnson left with a concussion in the second half.
Slovik reunites with former 49ers defensive coordinator Ryans in Houston. Only time will tell if another employee travels from San Francisco to Houston to join Slovik and Ryans.
