Bill O'Brien got a bit antsy as his introductory press conference with the Houston Texans started to drag on and a question was posed about how much he knows about his new team.
The Houston Texans have interviewed Penn State's Bill O'Brien about their vacant head coaching job and he has emerged as a leading candidate, according to media reports.
Gary Kubiak is out in Houston, the first NFL coach relieved of his duties. With three weeks remaining in the regular season, from North (Leslie Frazier) to South (Mike Munchak), from East (Mike Shanahan) to West (Dennis Allen), there are plenty more candidates to get canned.
The team announced the decision one day after the Texans lost 27-20 at Jacksonville, a stunning fall for a team that expected to make a Super Bowl run. Houston played miserably and was flagged 14 times for a franchise-record 177 yards.
Gary Kubiak pulled the Texans out of the NFL basement and remains the only coach to take them to the playoffs.
Ed Reed knew right from the start of free agency that he wanted to play for the Texans and that his days in Baltimore were over.
Last Thursday, Reed flew to Houston aboard owner Bob McNair's private jet and Reed spent two days meeting with coaches and management. Reed and his representatives left town without a deal and the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens were reportedly making a pitch to retain him.
Free agent safety Ed Reed left the Houston Texans on Friday with no deal in place.
The Houston Texans gave safety Ed Reed the star treatment on Thursday while losing another key player in free agency.
Ed Reed is sure getting the red-carpet treatment from the Houston Texans.
The Houston Texans announced contract extensions Thursday for general manager Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak, rewarding them for taking the team to the playoffs last year for the first time.
Andre Johnson hugged his coach at the end of Houston's first playoff victory — a moment a decade in the making.
New York Giants owner John Mara was appointed chairman of the NFL Management Council, the league's most powerful committee.
On his 30th birthday last month, Andre Johnson didn't spend much time thinking about football or the fact that he has yet to reach the playoffs.
Wade Phillips knows how he can fix the Houston Texans' defense.
"He showed that he has the ability to step into difficult situations and turn them around," Houston owner Bob McNair said. "He did that at Penn State under very difficult circumstances and did an outstanding job there. We expect to see good things happen immediately."
"If we wound up with a young quarterback, we'd probably bring in a veteran so we don't have to depend on that rookie," McNair said. "That's tough putting a rookie in there and expecting them to be able play right off the bat. There've been a couple of them that have done it but a number of them didn't do so well. I think having that veteran presence is important."
