Default A Must Read On HOF Former Oilers Offensive Lineman Now Coach Bruce Matthews

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

A three-coach-to-five-starters ratio is the sort of thing Bruce Matthews might have made fun of during his 19-year career as an offensive lineman with the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans.

But now that he's the third coach in just such a scenario, he's taken a softer stance and has a quip at the ready about it: "Until John Benton told me the Rams had four coaches for their two quarterbacks, or they did when Mike Martz was up there, I thought we were something special. But apparently that's not the case."

Alex Gibbs is technically the Texans' assistant head coach/offense, but he is the mastermind behind the line's run-blocking scheme. Benton is the offensive line coach and focuses a bit more on pass protection. Matthews is one of two entry-level coaches designated as an "offensive assistant."
There is little glamour in such a job. But during an illustrious career, Matthews never acted as if anything was below him. So it's not that surprising that the Hall of Famer, who turns 48 on Aug. 8, is just fine working at a photocopier, changing out the transparencies during an offensive line meeting or doing whatever is asked.

Still, glimpses of it can be striking.

"Me and Chester [Pitts] are back there, pointing," right tackle Eric Winston said. "'That's HoF over there, changing the transparencies.' I think that says nobody's above doing the little things."

The Texans could do a lot worse than having Matthews in the fold. He has always been an outstanding player and person. The OL would do well to listen to every tidbit he offers.

It's his job to blog about the AFC South. Kuharsky resides in Nashville and is a bit Titans biased IMO. Due to that though he should be pretty familiar with Bruce.

I can see Bruce being a head coach some day considering the trend of ex-great NFL offensive linemen as head coaches. Hopefully he will make his way up there at some point.

I was joking around sort of like a fake test.

According to some Titan fans....Bruce doesn't have a chance in hell to ever be a good head coach (or even a good line coach), because they think he was just "too great of a athlete to ever learn technique".

You know how Titan fans are.....all their coaches/players are the greatest, everybody else in the division sucks and when other teams do have players that do good (MJD and Slaton) it's just because of the system they play in.

I honestly don't know what I hate more, the team or that fanbase.....they are completely IGNORANT.

I don't care how athletic you are, athleticism alone is not enough to be more than proficient at all 5 positions. I think, in fact I know that you have to have a pretty good understanding of technique and a good understanding of the offense in order to do that.

asshats!!

Not to mention when you play 2 damn decades in the NFL.....I'm pretty sure Bruce's "superior athleticism" was pretty much gone well after his first decade in the NFL.

'Me and Chester' should never be more than 24 inches from Matthews with legal pads and pens writing down every thing Bruce says.
