Bobby King is in his third season with the Houston Texans and second as the team’s assistant linebackers coach. King joined the Texans as a defensive assistant in 2011 and was promoted to his current position in March 2012. He has spent his entire collegiate and pro coaching career in the state of Texas.

Despite numerous injuries that affected depth throughout 2012, the Texans’ linebackers remained an integral part of the NFL’s seventh-ranked defense. Inside linebacker Brian Cushing was leading the team with 43 tackles and had one interception when he went down with a season-ending ACL injury in Week 5. Inside backer Bradie James led the unit with 105 tackles in Cushing’s absence, while veterans Tim Dobbins, Darryl Sharpton and Barrett Ruud helped shore up the middle of the defense. On the outside, rookie Whitney Mercilus tied Brooks Reed’s rookie sack record with 6.0 in spot duty from the weak side. Reed totaled 42 tackles and 2.5 sacks from the strong side, despite missing four games with a groin injury. He tied for the team lead in the postseason with 1.5 sacks.

In 2011, King’s efforts helped produce the third-largest defensive improvement in NFL history since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Texans ranked second in the NFL in total defense with 285.7 yards per game after giving up 376.9 yards per game and ranking 30th in 2010.

King came to the Texans 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. 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 worked with the defensive line as a graduate assistant 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.

King and his wife, Elizabeth, have a son, Jack Robert, who was born in March 2012.
