The Houston Texans agreed to terms Monday on a three-year deal with Romeo Crennel to take over as defensive coordinator.

Crennel was widely believed to be the favorite to become Bill O’Brien’s defensive coordinator because of their ties as former New England Patriots assistants, even though the two men had never worked together.

Last week, the Texans hired former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel to be their linebackers coach.

Vrabel played under Crennel but also was Ohio State’s defensive line coach. O’Brien was impressed with what he saw from the Buckeyes’ linebackers when he served as the Penn State coach for two seasons in the Big Ten, sources said.
