While T.J. Yates came out of nowhere to help lead the Texans to the playoffs after they lost Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart to injury, his quarterbacks coach is getting a big promotion.
As the Houston Chronicle writes, Houston coach Gary Kubiak confirmed that Texans quarterback coach Greg Knapp has taken the Raiders offensive coordinator job.
Knapp shouldn’t be unfamiliar with the Raiders organization, considering he was their offensive coordinator from 2007-08 (he also has been the offensive coordinator for the 49ers and the Falcons).
Also, according to Foxsports.com, new Oakland coach Dennis Allen is trying to fill out his staff by interviewing former 49ers and Chargers defensive coordinator Greg Manusky for the same job with the Raiders.
