Bill O’Brien To Be Named Texans New Head Coach

According to ESPN, the Houston Texans have agreed to terms with Penn State Head Coach Bill O’Brien to be the new head coach of the Houston Texans. O’Brien will be the third head coach in franchise history following the tenure Gary Kubiak who was with the team for eight seasons.

O’Brien posted a 15-9 record while at Penn State, who was coming off sanctions handed down from the NCAA following the Sandusky situation. With a four year post season ban and losing 40 scholarships over a 4-year period, O’Brien was able to keep the program together despite the ongoing issues at Happy Valley. At Penn State, he garnered the Paul “Bear” Bryant, Big 1G, Maxwell and AT&T-ESPN Coach of the Year awards in 2012.

At 44 years old, O’Brien attended Brown University where he played defensive end and linebacker.

O’Brien will be taking over a 2-14 team in the Texans that need a new vision and voice to get the franchise back on track. O’Brien was chosen over Lovie Smith and Wade Phillips for the head coaching position for the Texans.
