Houston Texans agree to terms with HC Bill O'Brien

The Houston Texans became the first team to fill thier head coaching vacancy, when they reached an agreement with Penn State HC Bill O'Brien. This isn't surprising considering they were the first to fire thier head coach, Gary Kubiak, in week 13 after a 2-11 start, in hopes of getting a jump on other teams trying to fill the position.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bill O'Brien's name was being bandied about as a top head coaching prospect ever since last year when he took interviews for several NFL head coaching jobs. O'brien, 44, spent five years as a Patriot assistant before taking the head coaching job for the embattled Penn State program.

O'brien is a former offensive coordinator and specializes in developing talent at the quarterback position. Whether it's Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel or another young QB, O'Brien will have the opportunity to develop a young QB with the first overall pick in the NFL draft this spring.
