The Texans have found their new offensive line coach.

According to Fox Sports' Alex Marvez, the Texans' new offensive line coach is former Falcons coach Paul Dunn.

Dunn was one of the Falcons' offensive line coaches for the past six seasons before getting fired in late December.

Before he was with the Falcons, he was the offensive line coach for the University of Pittsburgh from 2005-07. He has also coached at Kentucky, Kansas State, Vanderbilt, University of Cincinnati, Maine and Rutgers.

He began his coaching career at Pitt as a graduate assistant in 1983. Dunn played offensive guard in the early 80s for the Pitt Panthers. He was a college roommate of Dan Marino.

The Texans lost out on getting former Titans head coach Mike Munchak as their offensive line coach. Instead, Munchak took the same opening with the Steelers.

Marvez also reports that former Texans offensive line coach John Benton is headed to Miami to be their assistant O-line coach.
