Houston Texans Fire Bill O'Brien

Bill O'Brien is out as the Houston Texans GM and head coach. O'Brien was relieved of duties this afternoon. The team started 0-4 and has struggled to score points while giving up at least 28 points a game.

Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair issued the following statement: "On behalf of my family and our entire organization, I want to sincerely thank Bill O'Brien and his family for their impact on our franchise. Bill's leadership moved our organization forward as he guided us to four AFC South division championships, 52 wins and multiple playoff appearances during his tenure. Bill proved himself as a coach and leader in this league. I spoke with him earlier today and told him we were moving in a different direction. Romeo Crennel will serve as our interim head coach for the remainder of the 2020 season. We have a talented team and I have no doubt our players and staff will rally to make Texans fans proud as we aim to win championships and do great things for the city of Houston."
