Transcript HOUSTON TEXANS On Oct. 6, 1999, professional football returned to Houston when the National Football League Owners voted 29-0 to grant the NFL's 32nd franchise to Houston and Bob McNair for an incredible record amount of $700 million dollars. Determined to create a first-class NFL operation, McNair hired Charley Casserly on Jan. 19,2000, to be the team's first Executive/General Manager. Casserly was an integral cog in the Redskin organization that captured Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. The first city to build a domed stadium one-upped itself by creating plans to build the world's first retractable-roof football stadium next to the Astrodome. On March 9, 2000 McNair and the city of Houston celebrated the official groundbreaking of the new 69,500-seat state-of-the- art facility where the team will begin play in 2002. The excitement of professional football in Houston increased Sept 6, 2000 when the team was officially christened the Houston Texans, appropriately enough before thousands of fans at a downtown rally on Texas Avenue. Reliant Energy leaped aboard the Texan bandwagon when they signed a 32-year agreement and acquired the naming rights for the football stadium and sports, entertainment and convention complex formerly known as the Astrodomain Complex. Casserly named Dom Capers as the club's first head coach on January 21,2001. Capers coached the expansion Carolina Panthers to the NFC West title and a berth in the NFC Championship Game in 1996. Houston's re-entry into professional football created an instant rivalry between the Texans and the Tennessee Titans, formerly the Houston Oilers, when the NFL announced its realignment plan for 2002. The Texans join Indianapolis, Jacksonville and Tennessee in the AFC South. Houston's successful return to the National Football League was further realized as the team made the first pick in the 2002 NFL draft. - Tom Carpenter Go Team! The Texans cheerleaders keep score for a gymnastics tournament. Although at this point only the cheerleaders have been picked, the team should be drafted soon. Photo by Kevin Harwerth The jersey unveiling was an important event for the soon-to-be Texans' staunchest supporters. It had originally been set for Sept. 12, but after the World Trade Center and Pentagon tragedies, it was rescheduled. The new football uniforms are modeled by Texans-wannabes. The team's colors inspire patriotism, with their red, white and blue jerseys. oiuston 1 exams
