Jim Ryan
Assistant Offensive Line Coach
College:

Camden, N.J.
Experience:
8

Jim Ryan is in his third year with the Houston Texans and second as the assistant offensive line coach. He was promoted to his current position in March 2012 after joining the Texans as an offensive assistant prior to the 2011 season.

Ryan has assisted with an offensive line that has helped the Texans lead the NFL in time of possession in both of the last two seasons and produced four Pro Bowl appearances. The offensive line also has led the way for consecutive 2,000-yard rushing performances and a pair of AFC South crowns for the Texans since Ryan assumed his current position.

The offensive line also has led the way for consecutive 2,000-yard rushing performances and a pair of AFC South crowns for the Texans since Ryan assumed his current position.

Houston ranked fourth in the AFC with 28 sacks allowed and set a franchise record with a League-best 32:53 time of possession in 2012. Overall, Houston’s offense averaged 372.1 yards per game to rank seventh in the NFL. Running back Arian Foster led the NFL with 17 total touchdowns and 15 rushing touchdowns and churned out 1,424 rushing yards behind the Pro Bowl play of left tackle Duane Brown, left guard Wade Smith and center Chris Myers. Brown became the first offensive lineman in Texans history to earn Associated Press All-Pro First Team recognition.

The Texans set franchise records with 2,448 rushing yards (153.0 per game) and 546 rushing attempts to rank second in the NFL in 2011. The run game excelled in the postseason, averaging 159.5 rushing yards per game in helping the Texans reach the Divisional round in Ryan’s first year on staff. Houston also led the NFL in time of possession (32:41) and set a franchise record for fewest interceptions thrown with nine.

Ryan played 10 seasons and coached for six more in the professional ranks prior to joining the Texans. He spent the 2010 season as the special teams coordinator with the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL and also worked with the team’s linebackers. He began his NFL coaching career in November 2004 when he joined the Denver Broncos staff as a volunteer defensive assistant. He was hired as a full-time defensive assistant in 2005.

After three years assisting with the Broncos defense, Ryan worked as an offensive assistant in 2007 alongside current Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. He returned to the defensive side of the ball as the linebackers coach in 2008.

Ryan began his coaching career as a volunteer coach in 2001 at Regis Jesuit High School in Colorado. He was head coach at Regis from 2002-04, leading the team to the 5A state playoffs each year.

Ryan enjoyed a 10-year playing career with the Broncos, joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of William & Mary in 1979. From 1979-88, Ryan started 91 games at linebacker in the Broncos’ 3-4 system and played in 150 games overall, including Super Bowls XXI and XXII.

Following his playing career, Ryan entered the broadcasting arena and called all University of Colorado football and basketball games for six years as the “Voice of the Buffs.” He also served as the president of the Denver Broncos Youth Foundation from 1992-95.

A native of Bellmawr, N.J., Ryan is a member of the Bishop Eustace High School (N.J.) Hall of Fame and the William & Mary Hall of Fame. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from William & Mary and an MBA in real estate and construction management from the University of Denver while playing for the Broncos.

Ryan and his wife, Sara, have three sons and a daughter-in-law: Ben, an Air Force captain, and his wife, Becca, a lawyer; Jonathan, a project manager; and Sam, a freelance cinematographer and editor.
