Rhodes, who spent five seasons as a head coach first in Philadelphia and then Green Bay, worked in Seattle since 2003. He was the defensive coordinator for the Seahawks from 2003-05 and had the title of special projects/defense the past two seasons.
Rhodes worked with Texans coach Gary Kubiak for one season in San Francisco and from 2001-02 with the Broncos.
``He brings tremendous experience and passion to our coaching staff,'' Kubiak said.
He was the NFL Coach of the Year in 1995 after leading the Eagles to a 10-6 record and a wild-card spot in the playoffs. He was the Redskins defensive coordinator in 2000.
Rhodes is from Mexia, Texas, and played two seasons at TCU before finishing his career at Tulsa and played seven NFL seasons.
