Karl Dorell Named the New Texans QB Coach

The Texans have a new QB coach, as the team has come to terms with Karl Dorell to take over that spot on the coaching staff.

Dorell replaces Greg Knapp, who is now the offensive coordinator with Oakland.

Dorrell was the head coach at UCLA from 2003-07 and has previous NFL coaching experience with the Broncos from 2000-02, where he was worked as a receivers coach on Mike Shanahan’s coaching staff that had Gary Kubiak as offensive coordinator.

Dorell, 48, has spent the last four seasons with the Miami Dolphins, coaching receivers from 2008-10 before becoming the quarterbacks coach in 2011. The Dolphins lost starting quarterback Chad Henne early in the 2011 season and had to turn to free agent addition Matt Moore in October. In 13 games, including 12 starts, Moore completed 60.5 percent of 347 pass attempts for 2,497 yards with 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions for passer rating of 87.1.
