The Texans promoted pro scout Ronnie McGill to director of pro personnel, according to league sources.
McGill was with the New England Patriots as a scout, including for three Super Bowl winning teams, before joining the Texans last year.
Former Texans personnel director Matt Bazirgan left the AFC South franchise to join the Buffalo Bills as a senior personnel executive.
McGill was a scouting assistant for New England for two years, joining them in 2010, before being promoted to pro scout.
McGill started his NFL career as a seasonal intern for the Tennessee Titans' scouting department in 2009.
A former University of North Carolina running back, McGill rushed for 2,393 career yards and 24 touchdowns for the Tar Heels. He was an all-state running back and high jumper.
The Texans recently hired former Patriots Midwest area scout D.J. Debick as their assistant director of pro scouting.
Debick, like Texans general manager Nick Caserio, is a fellow John Carroll University football alum.
Debick joined the Patriots in 2016 as a scouting assistant and was promoted to area scout in 2018. He's a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers intern who has a bachelor's and master's degree from John Carroll.
Debick was a graduate assistant for two years at John Carroll, a Division III powerhouse that has produced several notable NFL employees, including Caserio, Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco, Las Vegas Raiders general manager Dave Ziegler, Raiders coach Josh McDaniels, Washington Commanders executive Chris Polian, Texans special teams coordinator Frank Ross, Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman and Philadelphia Eagles executive Dave Caldwell.
