Dennison to Texans

Posted Jan 13, 2010

The Houston Texans on Wednesday announced that Rick Dennison will take over as the team's offensive coordinator. Dennison spent 15 seasons on the Denver Broncos coaching staff.

After 15 years on the Denver Broncos coaching staff including nine seasons instructing the team's offensive line, Rick Dennison has been named the new offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans, the Texans announced Wednesday.

Dennison was a former linebacker on three Super Bowl teams for the Broncos from 1982-90, and served as special teams coach for the team for its back-to-back Super Bowls in 1997 and 1998.

The Broncos have recorded five individual 1,000-yard rushing seasons by four different players with Dennison coaching their offensive line since 2001, and posted three of the four-lowest single-season sacks allowed totals in club history, including a franchise record-low 12 in 2008.

He was the team's offensive coordinator from 2006-2008, offensive line coach from 2001-05, special teams coach from 1997-2000 and offensive assistant from 1995-96.

Dennison will now coach under Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, a former Broncos coach and player as well. He backed up John Elway from 1983-91, and was a teammate of Dennison's for most of their careers. He and Dennison coached together in Denver for 11 seasons before Kubiak left for Houston.
