Houston Texans Hire Bill O’Brien as New Head Coach
The Houston Texans made the first of many NFL coaching hires as they get Bill O'Brien as their third head coach in franchise history. After taking over a controversial program at Penn State after Joe Paterno, O'Brien brought Penn State back to national relevance.
O'Brien is known for his offensive savvy as he was a one-time offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots and coached Tom Brady.
"We needed a fiery coach," Texans officials said, hoping to help solve their much-needed quarterback issues.
