On Thursday, the Texans announced their 2019 coaching staff and Wes Welker was not on it. But, for good reason.

The former Patriots wide receiver will be the new wide receivers coach for the 49ers, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Welker spent the last two seasons working in the Texans organization pretty much learning a number of different things of what it is like to coach in the NFL. He didn't have a defined role, but was blocked from interviewing with the Broncos last year.

The 37-year-old will now get to work with the 49ers receivers, who will be catching passes from Jimmy Garoppolo.
