Coaches

Bruce Matthews
Offensive Assistant
College:
University of Southern California
Hometown:
Raleigh, N.C.
Experience:
2
Bruce Matthews enters his second season on the Texans’ coaching staff and will assist the offensive staff in player evaluation and game preparation.

Matthews, 48, is in his second year as a coach after a Hall of Fame career as a player. He played 19 seasons in the NFL, all with the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Oilers/Tennessee Titans franchise. Matthews was the most decorated lineman in league history and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007, his first year of eligibility. He tied a league record with 14 consecutive Pro Bowl selections and was a nine-time first-team All-Pro. Matthews was selected as a guard to the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 1990s and was one of two players to start every game during the decade.  

At the time of his retirement in 2001, Matthews had played in more games (296) than any non-kicker in NFL history and more seasons (19) than any offensive lineman. He never missed a game due to injury. During the course of his career, Matthews started at all five positions along the line, making him arguably the most versatile lineman of all time. His number 74 was retired by the Titans, and he was inducted into the franchise’s hall of fame in 2002.

Following his retirement as a player, Matthews served as a volunteer coach at Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas, and coached youth football. Matthews was drafted by the Oilers with the ninth overall pick of the 1983 NFL Draft out of Southern California, where he was an All-American guard. He attended Arcadia (Calif.) High School.
