Ohio State defensive line coach Mike Vrabel is leaving his position to coach the linebackers for the Houston Texans.
Vrabel was on Ohio State's coaching staff for three seasons. He joined the Buckeyes following the end of his NFL career, during which he won three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots.
Vrabel is the second coach on defense to leave the staff following the departure of co-defensive coordinator Everettt Withers.
I am thankful for everyone assoc with TOSU for 3 great years and my family and I are excited to join the Houston Texans as the LB coach.— Mike Vrabel (@CoachVrabel50) January 9, 2014
