Grantham is gone, signed by the Browns.

The Texans are in the market for a defensive line coach after Todd Grantham accepted an offer Thursday to become the defensive coordinator on Romeo Crennel's staff with the Cleveland Browns, sources said.

An official announcement by the Browns is forthcoming.

Grantham had offers from the Browns and the Miami Dolphins, where his former boss at Michigan State, Nick Saban, is the head coach. Grantham chose Cleveland, where he will oversee the Browns' conversion to a 3-4 scheme, the same system he has coached with the Texans the past three seasons.

Grantham interviewed with the Browns on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Texans coach Dom Capers will have to replace a member of his staff for the third time in two offseasons. After the 2003 season, linebackers coach Reggie Herring left to become defensive coordinator at North Carolina State, and assistant secondary coach Brian Stewart took a job as defensive backs coach with the San Diego Chargers.

Former Baylor coach Kevin Steele, Cary Gadette and Ted Gill, all of whom coached on Capers' staff at Carolina, could emerge as candidates to replace Grantham, but it's also possible Capers could hire a coach with whom he does not have ties.
