Texans assistant Romeo Crennel having too much fun to retire

Five decades into a stellar coaching career, Romeo Crennel has no intentions of retiring.

Rather than stepping aside after being the architect of the NFL's top-ranked defense last season as the Texans' defensive coordinator, Crennel opted to sign a two-year contract to become assistant head coach.

"I like this team, I wanted to be with the guys," Crennel said. "I like the players on this team. I could have retired probably, but I'm not ready to. I got to keep going. It shouldn't be as much stress on gameday."

The 69-year-old former Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs head coach is entering his fourth season with the Texans after previously being the New England Patriots' defensive coordinator.
