3. Pep Hamilton, passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach, Houston Texans

Pep Hamilton has reignited his career and established himself as one of the best offensive minds in football following a stint as the head coach of the XFL’s DC Defenders.

Most expected Hamilton to receive an offensive coordinator job in the offseason, but he surprisingly received somewhat of a lateral move when he was hired by the Houston Texans to be their passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

The former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator had served as the quarterbacks coach for Justin Herbert in Los Angeles prior to joining the Texans, and he received interviews for other coordinator jobs in the offseason.

It was certainly odd to see Hamilton join the Texans, but most feel like it’s a formality at this point that he receives an offensive coordinator job.

And who wouldn’t love the opportunity to come work with Lamar Jackson in Baltimore?

Hamilton has been coaching for the better part of two decades, but his only stint as an offensive coordinator in the NFL came with the Colts from 2013-2015.

His specialty has been quarterbacks as he’s helped develop the likes of Herbert, Jay Cutler, Alex Smith, and Chad Pennington over the years.

But he’s never worked with someone like Lamar Jackson.

On top of that, Hamilton is good friends with John Harbaugh’s brother, Jim, and served as his assistant head coach and passing game coordinator from 2017-2018 as well as in 2010 as his wide receivers coach at Stanford.

If Hamilton is looking for an offensive coordinator job again this offseason, there might not be many better options than the Ravens.
