HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans went through a large amount of change during the off-season so far and starting Running Back Arian Foster thinks it was a needed development.

The Texans changed out 16 assistant coaches along with their head coach Gary Kubiak for new coach Bill O’Brien after a disastrous 2-14 season in 2013.

“It’s good to get some new energy and new blood in there,” Foster told HOT Hits 95-7’s Sarah Pepper at the grand opening of a Top Golf in Spring, TX on Monday. “We really appreciated what the old regime did but change happens in the NFL yearly and it was time to make a change and they made the change and we’re excited about it.”

The Texans started their official off season program on Monday and Foster said everyone feels good to be back to work.

“I know the guys are working hard,” Foster said. “We’re back at it. The coaching staff is excited.”

Pepper predicted that the Texans would win the Super Bowl this year and the pro-bowl running back believes that it isn’t out of the question for the Texans to bounce back.

“I feel like (The Texans can win the Super Bowl) as well,” Foster said. “You work so hard during the off-season you feel like there’s nobody working as hard as you. I feel like that is the mentality you have to have and hopefully this year is the year. I’m going to try as hard as I can to make sure it is.”

The Texans, Monday, added some depth to a very light running back group that really only included Foster after Ben Tate signed with Cleveland as a Free Agent. Andre Brown signed a one-year deal with Houston to be the backup to Foster.
