Bill O’Brien fired by Texans

Former Penn State coach Bill O’Brien has been fired as head coach and GM of the Houston Texans, according to multiple reports late this afternoon and then confirmed by the team.

Here’s my thoughts on why O’Brien was fired.

The Texans are off to an 0-4 start this season, and that’s coming off a tumultuous offseason in which O’Brien made several questionable moves as the GM.

O’Brien has received a lot of criticism over the years with the Texans, with his teams often playing poorly in big games. But he did have success, as well, winning four AFC South titles and making the playoffs four times in his first six seasons.

The 0-4 start this year dropped his record with the Texans to 52-48.

His offenses frequently struggled over the years, but that was expected to change when the Texans drafted Deshaun Watson. Despite having a young franchise QB, the Texans still had offensive issues, and O’Brien couldn’t survive the heat this time.

Also, here’s another video I did recently talking about O’Brien’s time with Penn State and how he has had a lot of ups and downs with the Texans.
