Dorrell comes to the Texans from the Miami Dolphins where he spent the last fours, the first three as receivers coach and last season as quarterbacks coach. He worked on the Denver Broncos staff from 2000-2002 when Gary Kubiak was the Broncos offensive coordinator.

Before joining the Dolphins, Dorrell was head coach at UCLA for five years, compiling a 35-27 record before being fired after the 2007 season.

I got no problem with who he hires on the offensive side, it's just the defensive guys that were really called to question. :kubepalm:

Very good hire. We now have 3 coaches on our staff with Head Coaching experience. I would have been good with bringing Sherman back on our staff as well, but wish him well in Miami as their OC.

I was curious on how many coaches actually coached with Kubiak in Denver, here is the list.

Offense
Jim Ryan
Rick Dennison
Brian Pariani
Larry Kirksey
Karl Dorrell


Other
Cedric Smith

6 coaches with Denver Kubiak vs 12 coaches that didn't coach with Kubiak in Denver.

I think this is a good hire. Anybody who already knows the system Kubiak is running is helpful.

The Texans offensive staff is very collaborative. They do a lot of cross-positional teaching. Yeah, the labels of the assistant coaches matter because those are the guys in charge of those positions, but often each assistant helps reinforce the details of this offense to players outside of their positional responsibility.

As a basic point, it is good that they don't need to completely bring new guy up to speed.

IIRC, the Texans tried to hire him before but were denied permission to interview.

No love for Karl Dorrell?

From 12/28/2007
Quote:
Former UCLA coach Karl Dorrell will be one of the candidates to replace Mike Sherman as the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator next season according to the Houston Chronicle.

When coach Gary Kubiak was offensive coordinator at Denver, Dorrell was the Broncos' receivers coach for three seasons (2000-02) before he left to become UCLA's head coach. Dorrell was fired by the Bruins earlier this month.

Kyle Shanahan, who has coached receivers and quarterbacks in his two seasons with the Texans, also is a candidate to replace Sherman, who was hired earlier this month as the new coach at Texas A&M.

That article is no longer available at the Chron. Dorrell is with the Dolphins now.

Shocked that he hasn't been with the Texans, yet. Didn't know there were any FOKs left that hadn't been hired/fired.

From HC of a major college program to a mere position coach ? This guy is definitely way overqualified and that's a real drop in money and status and responsiblilty.

Seems like a very solid hire. HC experience in College & Kubiak connection in NFL. Will keep balanced blend of run & pass. Like fact he comes from outside organization & possibly offer a different perspective of current players on roster & help set Texans draft board, as well free agent acquisition.

The Texans have hired Karl Dorrell as their new quarterbacks coach to replace Greg Knapp, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Dorrell, 48, was the receivers and quarterbacks coach for the Miami Dolphins this past season. He knows Texans coach Gary Kubiak from when they were both on the Denver Broncos' staff under Mike Shanahan -- Kubiak as offensive coordinator and Dorrell as receivers coach.

Dorrell left the NFL in 2003 to become head coach of the UCLA Bruins. He was 35-27 in five seasons before the Bruins fired him.

The Raiders hired Knapp to be their new offensive coordinator last week.

Not that surprising if you look at his coaching career. He's never been a coordinator in the NFL. He's had a few OC jobs in college though. I'm guessing he probably could have had another coordinator job for some university but would rather be in the pros, even if it is as a position coach.

HOUSTON (AP)óKarl Dorrell has joined the Houston Texans as quarterbacks coach.

A former head coach at UCLA, Dorrell spent the last four seasons with the Miami Dolphins as QB coach. From 2008-10, Dorrell served as Miamiís wide receivers coach.

In his five years at UCLA he compiled a 35-27 record and led the Bruins to a bowl appearance each year. In 2005, Dorrell was the Pac-10 Conference co-Coach of the Year after leading UCLA to a 10-2 record, a No. 16 ranking and a Sun Bowl victory against Northwestern.

Dorrell also served as wide receivers coach with Denver from 2000-02, working with several current Houston coaches, including head coach Gary Kubiak.

Karl Dorrell has joined the Houston Texans coaching staff as quarterbacks coach, the team announced Friday. Dorrell brings 24 years of collegiate and professional coaching experience to the Texans, including the last four seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

In 2011, Dorrell oversaw a career season for Dolphins QB Matt Moore, who took over as the teamís starter in Week 5. Moore set career highs with 210 completions on 347 attempts for 2,497 yards and 16 touchdowns. He ranked fourth among AFC passers with an 88.7 passer rating after taking over as the starter and tied or set single-game career highs for passer rating, touchdown passes and longest touchdown pass.

From 2008-10, Dorrell served as the Dolphins wide receivers coach. In 2010, Dolphins WRs Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess combined for 165 receptions, the fourth-highest total by a duo in the NFL. Bess totaled 209 receptions from 2008-10 under Dorrellís guidance, the most by any Dolphins player in his first three years with the team.

Prior to coaching at UCLA, Dorrell was wide receivers coach with the Denver Broncos from 2000-02, serving with current Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and tight ends coach Brian Pariani. WR Rod Smith posted a pair of 100-reception seasons, earned his first two Pro Bowl selections and eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark three times under Dorrell. In 2000, WR Ed McCaffrey posted 101 receptions for 1,317 yards and combined with Smith for 201 receptions, 2,919 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns.

Dorrell also worked with the Broncosí staff during training camp in 1993 and 1999 as part of the NFLís Minority Coaching Fellowship program.

Well he did seem to make Matt Moore look like a real QB. Wonder what he can do with Yates?
