Bill O’Brien has reached an agreement to become the new head coach of the Houston Texans, multiple sources are reporting.
After firing Gary Kubiak with three games remaining in the season, the Texans got a jump start on their coaching search, and they did not waste any time fulfilling their vacancy.
Before becoming the head coach at Penn State, O’Brien served as an assistant for the New England Patriots from 2007-2011.
O’Brien emerged as one of the top candidates to fill the Houston coaching job of late, and the two sides reportedly met after Christmas with rumors swirling that a deal was in the works.
The deal is expected to be officially announced no later than Saturday, ESPN reports.
