O'Brien takes over as Texans coach
Bill O'Brien has been introduced as the third coach in Houston Texans history.
Less than two years after replacing Joe Paterno as coach at Penn State, the 44-year-old O'Brien has returned to the NFL. He was an offensive assistant under Bill Belichick at New England from 2007-12.
He was introduced on Friday, taking over for Gary Kubiak, who was fired with three games left in Houston's NFL-worst 2-14 season.
O'Brien was 15-9 at Penn State, hit hard by NCAA sanctions levied for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal that cost the late Paterno his job.
