Coaching Accomplishments

• James Casey joined the Houston Football program as an offensive football analyst in January of 2016 following a seven-year career in the NFL. In his first season with Houston, the Cougars’ offense finished the regular season ranked 15th in passing offense (310.9 yards per game) and 21st in scoring offense (38.0 points per game) as Houston scored at least 30 points in 11 of 12 regular season games.

• An All-American tight end at Rice, Casey was drafted in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, and spent four seasons with the team, at both tight end and fullback. He later spent two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and one with the Denver Broncos.

• In just two seasons with Rice (2007-08), Casey set three program records (receptions in a season, receiving yards in a game and a season) en route to earning Freshman All-America honors in 2007 and first team All-Conference USA honors in 2008. He was also named a CoSIDA Academic All-American in 2008 and received Rice’s James W. Glanville Award, presented annually to the player who has achieved excellence in athletics, academics and integrity.

• Prior to his time at Rice, Casey was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the seventh round of the 2003 MLB Draft and spent three years with organization.
