The Houston Texans have fired their head coach and general manager Bill O’Brien. He had been with the team for more than six seasons.
The Texans decided to part ways with O’Brien after going 0-4 to start the season. His firing comes after a 31-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, October 4th at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
With O’Brien no longer involved with the team, former head coach Romeo Crennel will serve as the interim head coach. He was previously the head coach with the Cleveland Browns and the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to NFL.com, O’Brien allegedly did not agree with Jack Easterby, who is serving as the team’s Executive Vice President of Football Operations. Easterby fired former GM Brian Gaine.
“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,” Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement. “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 are 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.”
Crennel was last a head coach during the 2012 season with the Chiefs. He guided the team to a 2-14 record.
