When the Texans play their preseason opener Sunday against San Francisco, fans will get their first look at the special teams under new coach Larry Izzo.
“Coach Izzo has been doing some great things, so it’s going to be nice to see how our guys are responding to it,” Pro Bowl snapper Jon Weeks said. “The biggest thing (Izzo) brings is experience.”
Izzo, a linebacker, played 14 years and became one of the best special teams players in NFL history.
“There’s not too many things you can talk to him about that he hasn’t experienced himself,” Weeks said. “That really helps. He can talk to us as a player, and I think that’s going to take us a long way.
“He’s teaching us a lot of great fundamentals, and I really think our team is really going to benefit from it.”
