Long-time Eagles assistant joining David Culley's Texans staff


Dino Vasso, a defensive coach the last five years on Doug Pederson’s staff, has accepted a job as secondary coach with the Texans. The news was first reported by Mark Berman of Fox26 in Houston and confirmed by Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Vasso worked with newly named Texans head coach David Culley from 2013 through 2015 on Andy Reid's Kansas City Chiefs staff alongside Pederson.

Vasso, a native of Crum Lynne in Delaware County and a graduate of Ridley High School, was a freshman at New Hampshire in 2006, Chip Kelly's final year in Durham before he left for Eugene to become Mike Bellotti's offensive coordinator at Oregon.

Vasso got his coaching start in 2011 as an offensive intern under Steve Addazio at Temple and then spent 2012 as a defensive graduate assistant under Gary Pinkel at Missouri. 

Reid hired him as a coaching assistant in 2013 when he put together his initial staff in Kansas City, and when Pederson was hired as Eagles head coach in 2016 he brought Vasso with him as a defensive quality control and assistant secondary coach under Cory Undlin.

Vasso was promoted to assistant secondary coach in 2019 and assistant defensive coordinator in 2020.
