Texans Hire Vance Joseph to Coach DBs

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports the Houston Texans have hired Vance Joseph to coach their defensive backs.

A former defensive back with the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts in the mid-90s, the 38-year old Joseph began his NFL coaching career in 2005 with the San Francisco 49ers, coaching the defensive backs until the end of the 2010 regular season.

Joseph had taken on a larger role with the 49ers in 2010, including relaying the defensive signals.

Houston's pass defense ranked 32nd in the NFL, allowing 267.5 yards per game and an NFL-worst 18 pass plays of 40+ yards.
