According to John McClain, the Texans were one of only three teams in the NFL without a designated special teams assistant coach on staff. It is an interesting hire. The Texans hired Bob Ligashesky as a special teams assistant on Monday. Ligashesky is the first special teams assistant in the history of the franchise. Ligashesky was special teams coordinator at Tampa Bay last season. Houston was barely in the top 10 in punt returns , in the bottom third of the league in kickoff return average , and their coverage units were even worse, as opponents were 20th and 27th, respectively, on punts and kickoffs returns.
