Former Clemson Assistant added to Texans staff

 HOUSTON (AP) - A person with knowledge of the decision says the
Houston Texans have hired former Clemson assistant Reggie Herring as their new linebackers
coach.


The person confirmed the hiring to The Associated Press on
Thursday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement
had been made by the team. The Houston Chronicle and KRIV-TV first
reported the hiring.

Herring, 51, coached linebackers for the Texans from 2002-03
under former coach Dom Capers. He had been the linebackers coach in
Dallas since 2008, under former Cowboys coach and new Houston
defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.

The Texans fired defensive coordinator Frank Bush and three
defensive assistants after going 6-10. Phillips was hired two days
later.

 Also Thursday, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing said on his
Twitter account that he underwent arthroscopic surgery on one of
his knees.

"Appreciate all the support and love, had to get my patella
cleaned up and knee scoped," he wrote. "Was about two years
overdue, time for rehab!"
