June 7 (UPI) -- He reached the pinnacle of success during his 12 year playing career, but Wes Welker is starting at the bottom of the NFL coaching ranks.
The two-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler explained his new gig Wednesday with the Houston Texans.
Welker, 36, was hired in January as an offensive/special teams assistant.
"Data entry," Welker told reporters Wednesday when asked about what he is doing as a coach. "I'm starting to get the hang of that stuff but a lot of the guys up there are years beyond I'll ever be, probably. A lot of that stuff, breaking down film. Just whatever they really need as far as any of that stuff. Whether it's the Visio stuff or anything. It's an entry level-type position. I'm just trying to help and do whatever I can to help the team get better and win."
The Texans have had a 9-7 record for three consecutive seasons, winning two AFC South titles. Houston has a winning record in five of its previous six seasons. Winning has been a constant for Welker, who was a member of teams combining for a 128-63 record during his decorated career.
Texans wide receivers coach John Perry said Welker has done a "great job" so far since being hired. Welker retired in 2016 after suffering at least six documented concussions during his NFL career.
Houston ranked No. 29 in the NFL in receiving yards last season and last in yards per catch. The Texans also scored the fewest receiving touchdowns in the AFC (15).
