An ESPN report says that the team is working on an agreement with Penn State’s Bill O’Brien for Houston’s vacant head-coaching job. In fact, Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter say that O’Brien is the "overwhelming favorite" to get the job.
The Texans reportedly met with O’Brien at the latter’s home in Cape Cod, after which talks grew stronger in the attempt to finalize a deal within the next week, according to a source.
However, one of the Nittany Lions’ top recruits, Thomas Holley of Abraham Lincoln HS in Brooklyn, NY, says he called O’Brien shortly after 6 p.m. ET Saturday after he heard the report.
