According to the Houston Chronicle and the Coastal Carolina football website, the Houston Texans have hired Doug Colman as the assistant special teams coordinator. Colman was the linebackers coach and coordinated the special teams for the Chanticleers for two seasons at Costal Carolina before accepting the position under Bill O'Brien.

Colman played at the University of Nebraska where he won two national championships with the Huskers in 1994 and 1995. He was drafted by the New York Giants in 1996 and he played for five seasons in the NFL, with the Giants, Tennessee Titans and the Cleveland Browns. Colman made a Super Bowl appearance with the Titans in the 1999.

Colman spent time with the Amsterdam Admirals in 2007 with the NFL Europe coaching program, then he returned to Nebraska as a defensive quality coach (2008-2009). In 2010 he joined the staff at Tulane University to coach linebackers, before arriving to Coastal Carolina for the 2011 season.

Special teams coach Bob Ligashesky will have Coleman as his assistant running the special teams for 2014.
