HOUSTON – The Houston Texans on Tuesday named a former cheerleader as the team's news cheerleading coach, a few months after the previous coach’s resignation.

Casey Potter, who has cheered for both the Texans and the Houston Rockets, was welcomed as the team’s new cheer coach in posts on the squad’s various social media accounts.

“A historic night for many reasons,” the Facebook post read, referencing the Texans snagging a franchise record eight-straight wins on Monday night.

Potter takes over for Altovise Gary, who resigned in August after she was named in a lawsuit filed by six former Texans cheerleaders. The lawsuit claims unfair working conditions, body shaming and sex discrimination.
