The O'brien era is over in Houston and Deshaun Watson will now have a new coach. The Texans have fired Bill O'Brien after an 0-4 start.
Owner Carl Mcnair released this statement.
"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. 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."
O'brien made several moves that are not panning out including trading former Clemson star Nuk Hopkins to the Cardinals.
Including clashing with players.
The Texans have the NFL's highest payroll this year at $248 million according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, and are in dire need of a restart. Romeo Crennel will take over as the interim coach.
