O’Brien known for work with QBs

Thu., Jan. 2, 2014

Bill O’Brien worked closely with Tom Brady when he was a Patriots assistant. He’s now set to return to the NFL to coach Houston, and he’s a long way from Brady. The Texans have the No. 1 draft pick, and O’Brien might well find himself having to groom a rookie quarterback. Two people familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night that O’Brien reached an agreement to coach the Texans. He is expected to be introduced today. He inherits a team filled with talent, but whose biggest problem is at quarterback. Matt Schaub and Case Keenum both showed they were not the answer in 2013 after the team finished on a 14-game skid. – AP
