Reports: Bill O’Brien reaches deal to coach Houston Texans

Bill O’Brien is leaving Penn State to become the head coach of the Houston Texans, according to multiple reports.

O’Brien is 15-9 in two years at Penn State.  He spent five years with the New England Patriots before coming to PSU.

The 44-year-old O’Brien has always had a strong interest in the NFL.  His contract was re-worked after last season and the buyout, if he were to leave for an NFL job, was lowered to about $6.5 million.

The Texans fired coach Gary Kubiak last month and they finished with the worst record in the NFL.  Houston owns the number 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

An official announcement is expected on Thursday.
