CBS Houston – Tuesday, the Texas A&M Aggies had a few coaches out at the Houston Methodist Training Center to overseas the Texans training camp for a few hours.
Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin was out in attendance but so was his offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.
Mazzone during the 2010-2011 season was the offensive coordinator for the Arizona State Sun Devils. Brock Osweiler played for three seasons with the Sun Devils, two of them spent under Mazzone’s tutelage.
“He’s a hard worker, he’s got a ton of talent,” Noel Mazzone told sportsradio610.com when asked about his former quarterback, “what I have always loved about Brock is he has unbelievable passion for the game, he wants to be great and that’s a good two first steps to have to achieving what you want to achieve.”
In Osweiler’s final season with the Sun Devils underneath Mazzone, he played in 13 games and passed for 4,036 yards to go with 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
His numbers and talent were good enough to make him a second-round pick in 2012 draft.
Now that he is in Houston with the Texans, Mazzone is happy to see him get an opportunity to be the team’s full-time starter.
