Texans fire special teams coach

The Texans have fired special teams coordinator Joe

Marciano.

Houston made the move on Friday, a few hours after firing head

coach Gary Kubiak. The Texans have lost 11 straight games.

Houston promoted Bob Ligashesky from special teams assistant to

coordinator. Ligashesky is in his 10th NFL season, but first full

year with Houston, and has an additional 19 years coaching

experience in the collegiate ranks.
