Texans are going to promote quarterbacks coach George Godsey to offensive coordinator. He was defacto OC last season.

I mentioned as much in the Hoyer thread. He alluded to Godsey calling plays in the future. & OB said things here & there that lead me to believe he had been last season as well.

However, I'm sure most of his time was spent with the QBs he'll actually be responsible for the whole offense now, which I don't think was the case last year.

Default Re: Texans promote George Godsey to Offensive Coordinator

When asked this morning about his decision to call plays, O'Brien brought up Godsey, unprompted.

Quote:
"He does a lot of things offensively to help me," O'Brien said. "I really give him a lot of responsibility offensively. At some point in time, probably sooner rather than later, he'll be an offensive coordinator. He does a lot of that for us."

Godsey began his career in the NFL as an offensive assistant for New England in 2011, the only year O'Brien was officially the Patriots' offensive coordinator. His relationship with O'Brien goes back to Georgia Tech when Godsey was a quarterback and O'Brien was a coach. He moved to tight ends coach there in 2012 and 2013 when O'Brien was at Penn State, then left to join O'Brien's staff in Houston last year.

He took some of the public responsibilities of an offensive coordinator, including conducting the Wednesday press conferences mandated for coordinators throughout last season. His title, though, was quarterbacks coach. One benefit of having a person take that gradual route is it offers a public murkiness on the inner workings of the team's offense. The collaborative effort of putting together the game plan can allow a coach can gain experience without the scrutiny that comes with being a first-year offensive coordinator. Godsey is ready, though.

It worked for O'Brien, who was calling plays in New England for three seasons, but only held the official title of offensive coordinator for one.

"It's really important to have a guy like George Godsey on your staff for me because he knows exactly what our system is, the definition of our system, how we want to call plays," O'Brien said. "How we design a game plan. I don't have to teach him that. He was with us in New England, he's come up to the ranks and he's a really good football coach."
One thing Godsey has room for improvement in is his pressers. Looks/acts uncomfortable as he squirms at the podium.

How much of this move in title is a way to "protect" Godsey from being stolen by another team as their OC? As a young and relatively inexperienced OC, it is probably pretty unlikely that he be escalated to HC by another team.

Maybe Billy and George are like peas and carrots?

I think he earned it, with O'Brien pushing him out there in front of the media each week to take some bullets.

I think it was to protect OB from the morons who weren't satisfied with a rookie HC bringing in a rookie OC. This way, all he had to deal with were the dummies whi insisted OB hire an OC.

I say this because it was only one year that Godsey OCed from the shadows. Had it been tworking or more, like OB did in New England, I'd say the reason was like you said.

Probably a good move for this year. Now OB can spend time on the overall game, and not tied up lining up offensive plays.
