Houston- The Houston Texans will see change to their staff with their Director of Sports Performance Luke Richesson stepping down from his post and returning back home to be with his family. The Texans hired Richesson during the 2018 off-season to revamp their strength and conditioning program and help the organization take the next step with an improved strength and conditioning program coupled with an enhanced nutrition program focused on hydration and improved sleep patterns for the players.
The Texans gave Richesson free rein to change the weight room and other parts of the facility at NRG Stadium to help him carry out his job. The Texans players and staff raved about the changed Richesson made prior to the start of the season but it was short lived and only for one season.
With Richesson stepping away from the Texans, it will be the third straight season the organization will need to fill that vacancy. Prior to the 2018 season, Bill O’Brien’s ordinal strength and conditioning coordinator Craig Fitzgerald left the team to take a job in the college ranks with the Tennessee Volunteers.
The Texans will work to find his replacement immediately and it will ensure another change to O’Brien’s staff for the 6th season in a row.
