HOUSTON – The Texans are hiring former Los Angeles Chargers quarterbacks coach Shane Day as a senior offensive assistant, according to a league source.

Day was fired by the Chargers as a passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, dismissed along with offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi following a loss in the AFC wild-card round to the Jacksonville Jaguars as they squandered a 27-point lead.

Day worked with Texans coach DeMeco Ryans with the San Francisco 49ers when he coached the quarterbacks under coach Kyle Shanahan.

He has previously worked for the Miami Dolphins, the Washington franchise and the Chicago Bears. He has also coached at Connecticut and Michigan.
