When the news broke earlier this week that Anthony Weaver was going to be promoted to defensive coordinator of the Texans, Aaron Wilson from the Houston Chronicle shed some light on the growth of the Saratoga Springs grad in the coaching game.

Weaver was a star for the Blue Streaks in Section 2 and then a captain as a defensive lineman at Notre Dame before entering the NFL as a second round pick with the Baltimore Ravens in 2002.

From his playing days in Baltimore and later with Houston, Weaver jumped into coaching. A couple of college stops led to the NFL; the Jets, Bills and Browns before returning to the Texans organization where he has ascended from defensive line coach to defensive coordinator.

Aaron Wilson has covered Weaver on a couple of different levels; as a player with the Ravens and now as a coach with the Texans. He joined Big Board Sports on Thursday morning with great insight on Weaver's career.
