The Houston Texans have found their man for the job in Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien, but they still are working on a deal to get him out of the college game and into the Pro level, per ESPN. The Texans have previously said that they would be looking to add a coach with previous NFL Head Coaching experience, but it seems that they have changed their colors on that issue with the interest in Bill O’Brien.
The Texans interviewed O’Brien this week and he appears to be at the top of their list. He has NFL experience under Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. He left the Patriots in 2012 to become the head coach of Penn State and could be heading back to the NFL.
O’Brien would be in charge of rejuvenating the Texans offensive attack. He has a few weapons to work with already with Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins on the roster, but he would still need to groom a quarterback to take control of the offense. Matt Schaub has shown that he could lead this team in the past, but is he the future of the Texans offense?
