Bill O’Brien now faces an uncertain future after getting fired Monday by the Texans.
Will O’Brien get another shot as an NFL head coach? Well, angry Texans fans will probably say, “Heck no!”
But that’s always how fans of one team feel when their coach is ousted.
In reality, O’Brien won four division titles in his first six seasons with the Texans and compiled an overall record of 52-48 in six-plus seasons. Those factors alone should warrant him getting another shot at some point as a head coach, although not as a GM, which is a role he failed in with Houston.
O’Brien is only 50 years old, so he has plenty of time to wait for another opportunity.
Here are my thoughts on why O’Brien will get another head coaching job and what he’ll have to do to be successful the next time around.
