Notable names attend #TexansCamp on Day 1

The first day of Texans Training Camp brought out some notable names.

Mike D'Antoni. Dana Holgorsen. Marshall Faulk. Charley Casserly.

The latter two were working, while the first two were taking in a Texans practice. D'Antoni, the head coach of the Houston Rockets, spends his summers at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. So he popped in at the start of practice and enjoyed his time with the Texans.

"It's exciting to show them West Virginia and I hope they have a great time," D'Antoni said during a segment on Texans Radio. "I know the people at The Greenbrier will do everything they can to make sure that this goes well. Now we just have to do this, and then win a Super Bowl."

Holgorsen, the head coach of West Virginia's football team, spent 2008 and 2009 as an assistant at the University of Houston. But he was an assistant at Texas Tech when Texans assistant Wes Welker starred there, and he was the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State when quarterback DeAndre Hopkins was All-Big 12. He also coached safety K.J. Dillon when the defender was a Mountaineer. 

Like Texans head coach Bill O'Brien, he too has had his team practice at the famous resort.

"I've brought the team down here to The Greenbrier," Holgorsen told Texans Radio. "It's a beautiful place. We've been down here twice."

Faulk, a Pro Football Hall of Fame running back, is now an analyst on the NFL Network. Casserly, who was the Texans' first general manager, is as well. That pair, along with Rhett Lewis and Ian Rapoport spent the day reporting and interviewing players at camp.
