Texans OC Bobby Slowik, QBs coach Jerrod Johnson staying in Houston after taking interviews

Bobby Slowik is staying in Houston for at least another season.

The Texans offensive coordinator has agreed to stay in Houston for the 2024 season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Tuesday, per sources informed of the situation.

Sports Illustrated first reported the news.

Slowik had multiple interviews with NFL teams for head coaching jobs in the last few weeks. The Seattle Seahawks and Washington Commanders hold the two remaining head-coaching openings. Slowik met with both teams for interviews this month.

The 36-year-old coordinator decided to stay put with the Texans after a 10-7 record and winning the AFC South title. Slowik, who was hired last offseason, commanded one of the league's most productive offenses.

Under Slowik's offense, quarterback C.J. Stroud had a stellar rookie campaign and is one of the finalists for the 2023 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year. Stroud, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 draft, finished the regular season throwing for 4,108 passing yards, 23 pass touchdowns and five interceptions in 15 games.

In other Texans news, quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson informed teams interested in hiring him as an offensive coordinator that he plans to return to Houston for the 2024 season, Rapoport added. Johnson conducted OC interviews with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints.

With Slowik and Johnson staying in Houston, head coach DeMeco Ryans gets to run it back with the same offensive minds for at least another season.
