The Houston Texans of the National Football League are led by American football coach and former linebacker DeMeco Ryans.  Ryans was a unanimous All-American playing college football at the University of Alabama.

Ryans was named the Defensive Rookie of the Year after being selected by the Houston Texans in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

Before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012, Ryans was named to two Pro Bowls. He played there for four seasons before retiring. Ryans joined the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 as a coaching assistant.

From 2017 to 2021, he was named defensive coordinator and coached the inside linebackers. In 2023, the Texans hired Ryans as their head coach.

What religion is DeMeco Ryans? Is DeMeco Ryans a Christian?

A lot of people are asking the same questions, about the religious background of Ryans, well let’s look into this and clear the air once and for all.

Ryans, who calls himself a God-fearing husband, father, and coach in his Twitter bio, credits his mother for instilling in him the importance. Well since he is a God-fearing person then we can classify him as Christian.

The 38-year-old Ryans is in only his sixth season coaching the 49ers (his second as the defensive coordinator) after a stellar playing career in which he was named to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2009 as a linebacker.

Yet despite his relative inexperience in coaching, his speedy turnaround of the 49er’s defense has garnered the attention of the rest of the NFL and made his name popular in discussions about head coaching vacancies.

It’s humbling to get requests for head coaching interviews, Ryans said on Jan. 11, according to NBC Sports. It’s special to be able to be in a select group, to have head coaching interviews and people requesting.

It’s a special moment. It’s a proud moment and I’m very thankful and grateful just to be spoken of in that light. I’m very humble, and very grateful, for those opportunities.
