Houston Texans opted to end their association with Head Coach and General Manager, Bill O’Brien, on Monday. The former Penn State coach joined the Texans in 2014 and led the Houston-based franchise to four Division titles in six years. Despite much success, O’Brien was not a fan favorite in Texas.
At the end of his tenure, Bill had a 52-48 record. Here’s what he said when he found out that he was relieved of his duties earlier this week.

“I respected the decision. I know in this business when we lost to Minnesota a game we had a chance to win I knew something like this could happen. That’s the business. We had a nice conversation. I thanked him for an opportunity,” O’Brien told Aaron Wilson.
However, we might see O’Brien in a coaching role sooner rather than later. “I want to coach. Football is the ultimate team game. No doubt in my mind I want to coach again,” he concluded.
Texans quarterback, Deshaun Watson, will be hoping to bag a win for his team in the coming weeks. Assistant coach Romeo Crennel will serve as interim Head Coach. Could this be the dawn of a new era in Houston? Will it be a better chapter than the previous one?
