Heading into the Texans’ Week 13 matchup against the Denver Broncos, Ryans has an overall record of 6-5.

After a 10-year NFL career as a player, Ryans was hired by the San Francisco 49ers as a defensive quality control coach in 2017. Adams then served as the inside linebackers coach for two seasons before becoming the defensive coordinator in 2021, a position he held until leaving for the Texans’ job.
