Texans promote Bobby King to assistant LBs coach

Posted Mar 29, 2012

HOUSTON – The Houston Texans have promoted Bobby King from defensive assistant to assistant linebackers coach.

HOUSTON – The Houston Texans have promoted Bobby King from defensive assistant to assistant linebackers coach, it was announced today.

King came to the Texans in 2011 after serving as the defensive quality control/assistant linebackers coach for the Dallas Cowboys in 2010, where he worked directly under Texans linebackers coach Reggie Herring and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. In 2011, Houston’s defense ranked second in the NFL with a franchise-record 285.7 yards allowed per game. The Texans also set franchise records for fewest rushing yards, fewest passing yards and fewest points allowed, and for most sacks in a season.

King has spent his entire coaching career in the state of Texas. Prior to his tenure in Dallas, King was the defensive line coach at West Texas A&M University in 2008-09, and helped the 2009 team reach its first bowl game since 1967.

From 2006-07, King helped coach the defensive tackles at Baylor. In 2005, King ended his first stint at WTAMU by helping the team win the Lone Star Conference championship and make the school’s first NCAA Division II Playoff appearance.

King began his coaching career as a student assistant at his alma mater, Texas El-Paso, working with the defensive line from 2002-03. He was a three-year letter winner and two-year starter at UTEP on the defensive line from 1998-2000.
