Texans name O’Brien as GM; hold dual roles in 2020

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Houston Texans have given the keys to their franchise to Bill O’Brien. Not only is he their head coach, but now he has a dual responsibility. 

O’Brien has been named the franchise’s general manager, according to ABC 13. This will be the first-time he will serve as a GM, as well, besides being the head coach.

During the 2019 season, the Texans did not have a GM. The role was filed by several individuals.

The team elected to make that move by not hiring a full-time GM after firing Brian Gaine. 

Besides O’Brien names as the GM, the Texans have also promoted Jack Easterby to the new role of Executive Vice President of Football Operations.

He was previously the team’s Executive Vice President of Team Development. 

“I was encouraged by the progress that our team made on the field this year which was due in part to our new structure, operating approach and the leaders within our football operations group,” Texans owner Cal McNair said.

O’Brien, Easterby, and the rest of the football operations will have some big decisions to make before free agency starts in March.
