After 7 seasons as head coach, Bill O’Brien was given his marching orders earlier this week, after a diabolical start, 0 -4, to the 2020 season.
Mike Vrabel from the Tennessee Titans, was along-time friend of O’Brien’s and were both members of the Patriots at the same time some years back. It was O’Brien who gave Vrabel his first coaching job in NFL in 2014, with the Texans.
Vrabel has nothing but respect for the man he calls a mentor and has no doubt that O’Brien will get back into NFL whenever he is ready to do so.
Romeo Crennel has been given the interim position of head coach of the Texans, who will meet Houston at Nissan Stadium in week 6 for the first time.
O’Brien’s’ future is uncertain at this point, however, speculation has it that he may well end up with the Titans as an offensive coordinator, a role he has sound experience in after his stint with the patriots in 2011. All this is contingent on whether Arthur Smith moves up to the top post of head coach for the Patriots in 2021.
