Former Houston Texans linebacker DeMeco Ryans has reportedly been hired as the franchise's next head coach, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Ryans spent his entire coaching career with the San Francisco 49ers, which included spending the past two seasons as the 49ers' defensive coordinator. San Francisco will receive compensation from Houston as part of Ryans' hiring.
"The #Texans and #49ers DC DeMeco Ryans have agreed to terms and he’ll be their new head coach, sources say. A homecoming for one of the franchise’s great leaders, as Houston gets its top choice. This will be announced today," Rapoport tweeted.
Ryans spent his first six seasons with the Texans after being selected at No. 33 overall in the second-round of the 2006 NFL Draft.
The former University of Alabama standout found immediate success as the 2006 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year as well as being selected as a first-team All-Pro in 2007 and a two-time Pro Bowler in 2007 and 2009.
