George Warhop enters his first season as the offensive line coach of the Houston Texans in 2022. He begins his tenure in Houston with 39 years of coaching experience, including 26 in the NFL. Prior to joining the Texans, Warhop was the offensive line coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars for three seasons (2019-21).
In 2021, Warhop guided a Jacksonville offensive line that blocked for first-year QB Trevor Lawrence, who set a franchise record for rookie passing yards (3,641), led all 2021 rookies with 359 completions and posted the second-most passing yards (3,641) and rushing yards (334) in the rookie class.
In 2020, Warhop's unit paved the way for standout college free agent rookie RB James Robinson as he became just the third rookie in franchise history to eclipse 1,000 yards rushing. Robinson finished the season with 1,070 rushing yards, the second-most by a rookie in Jaguars history.
In 2019, Warhop's offensive line helped RB Leonard Fournette accrue a career-high 1,674 scrimmage yards (1,152 rushing, 522 receiving), including 50-plus scrimmage yards in all 15 games he played. Fournette's 111.6 scrimmage yards per game ranked fourth in the NFL that season and sixth in Jacksonville's single-season history. The offensive line also helped protect for QB Gardner Minshew II, who threw for more yards (3,271) and more touchdowns (21) than any first-year signal-caller in Jaguars history. Rookie OL Jawaan Taylor was named to the All-Rookie Team by the Pro Football Writers of America after playing all 1,091 offensive snaps on the season.
Prior to joining the Jaguars staff, Warhop spent five seasons as the offensive line coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2014-18). In 2018, Warhop instructed a unit that paved the way for an offense that tallied the most yards (6,648), net passing yards (5,125), first downs (388) and points scored in team history. Tampa Bay finished third in the NFL in total yards per game (415.5), while their 5,125 net passing yards ranked fourth in team history. Warhop also served as the Buccaneers run game coordinator from 2016-18, helping RB Peyton Barber gain a career-high 871 rushing yards in 2018.
In 2017, Buccaneers OL Donovan Smith joined OL Paul Gruber as the only players in franchise history to start all 48 games through their first three seasons. While in Tampa Bay in 2015, Warhop oversaw an offensive line that cleared the way for 135.1 rushing yards per game, the fifth-most rushing yards in the NFL that season and second-most in team history, as RB Doug Martin finished second in the NFL with 1,402 rushing yards. Veteran OL Logan Mankins received a Pro Bowl nod while Smith and OL Ali Marpet both earned All-Rookie team honors (PFWA).
Before his time with the Buccaneers, Warhop spent five seasons as the offensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns (2009-13), helping OL Joe Thomas earn Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors each season. He also helped OL Alex Mack earn an All-Rookie selection in 2009, as well as Pro Bowl berths in 2010 and 2013.
Warhop spent four seasons as the offensive line coach for the San Francisco 49ers from 2005-08, helping his unit pave the way for three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons by RB Frank Gore, including a franchise-record 1,695 rushing yards in 2006. Warhop joined the 49ers after two seasons (2003-04) with the Dallas Cowboys, where he helped OL Flozell Adams and OL Larry Allen earn Pro Bowl berths each year. Warhop joined the Cowboys after five seasons (1998-2002) as the offensive line coach of the Arizona Cardinals, where he oversaw a unit that blocked for QB Jake Plummer as he completed 1,383-of-2,458 passes (56.3 percent) for 15,419 yards and 75 touchdowns throughout Warhop's tenure.
Prior to his first job in the NFL as an assistant line coach with the St. Louis Rams from 1996-97, Warhop spent 11 seasons as a collegiate coach at Boston College (1994-95), SMU (1993), New Mexico (1990), Vanderbilt (1987-89), Kansas (1984-86) and Cincinnati (1983). Warhop also spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator for the London Monarchs from 1991-92 in NFL Europe.
A former center at the University of Cincinnati, Warhop got his start in coaching as a student assistant at his alma mater in 1983. He and his wife, Lori, have one son, Jacob, and one daughter, Olivia.
