The Houston Texans revealed DeMeco Ryans as their new head coach on Thursday.

The former top candidate for the same position with the Denver Broncos reportedly, not only thanked the Broncos but somewhat took a shot at them while talking to the media in Houston.

“It wasn’t a difficult decision at all. It was easy,” Ryans said.

Ryans, the former defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, was drafted by the Texans and his wife is from the area. He called his new role his “dream job” in a statement after his hiring became official. Now it makes sense since he’s from the area why the decision would be so easy and given he’s given so much to the team… but he also left in a nasty way and they don’t carry the glory of the Broncos.

Ryans will now try to revamp the Texans who have the No. 2 overall pick in the draft and have been a laughing stock for much of their history. Houston’s last two coaches have each been fired after a single year.

The Broncos settled into trading major draft capital for the ability to hire former Saints head coach Sean Payton.

But were the Broncos in such a bad spot that Ryans said no or was going to H-Town so awesome that he couldn’t pass it up?
