Houston Texans are falling in love with Bill O’Brien for their coaching vacancy

On Saturday, our Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter reported that the Texans are intensifying talks with Penn State coach Bill O’Brien in hopes of making him their next head coach. (This probably means interim head coach Wade Phillips, who on Friday declined to say whether he had interviewed yet, has already interviewed).

They technically may not hire O’Brien until after the season ends, but no other team in the league has fired its coach yet. So, no other team is officially conducting interviews and no other team has had a chance to woo O’Brien.

Texans owner Bob McNair said he wanted someone with NFL experience and head-coaching experience, although not necessarily at the same time. We also know, through comments he has made in the past, how much respect McNair has for the Patriots and their success. O’Brien was the Patriots’ offensive coordinator before becoming Penn State’s head coach.
