The Houston Texans hired Nick Caserio as their new GM on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport.
Caserio is the director of player personnel for the Patriots and has been part of the New England dynasty since 2001. Aside from his executive role, Caserio has also been New England’s wide receiver coach since 2007. The Patriots won three Super Bowls since Caserio became wide receiver coach.
Caserio’s hire comes off of an extremely disappointing 4-12 season for the Texans that began with the firing of head coach and GM Bill O’Brien.
O’Brien’s most scrutinized move as Texans GM came in the offseason prior to the 2020 season, where he rid Houston of their star receiver Deandre Hopkins. Other highly criticized moves made by O’Brien include the dealing of Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks.
Bill O’Brien depleted the Texans of most of their star power, and Houston really paid the price for his moves this season. Hopefully, the addition of experienced executive Caserio will help turn things around in Houston and bring them back to their previous caliber.
The Texans are expected to officially announce Caserio as their new GM on Thursday.
