Bill O'Brien, Texans Reportedly Negotiating Contract Extension


The Texans are in negotiations to hire Brian Gaine as general manager and sign coach Bill O'Brien to a contract extension.

It is not known when the deal with Gaine will be made official by the Texans, but speculation is it will be before the Senior Bowl which the Texans are helping coach in two weeks.

Former Don Bosco Prep standout Brian Gaine, a Class of 1991 product, is reportedly set to be named the next general manager of the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

If O'Brien goes to Mobile, Ala., with an extension, it'll be easier for him to hire quality assistant coaches compared to him coaching as a lame duck in the a year ago of his contract.
