Houston Gets New Co-Adjutor

Surprising how many dioceses are getting co-adjutor's these days. Also what sense does it make to take a Bishop who is an ordinary of a diocese and place him in a diocese where there already is a bishop?

Anyway from the Vatican Information Service:

Appointed Bishop Daniel DiNardo of Sioux City as coadjutor bishop of the diocese of Galveston-Houston (area 23,257, population 4,704,532, Catholics 974,312, priests 443, religious 760, permanent deacons 300)
