REPORT: Texans To Not Hire OC; O’Brien To Call Plays In 2017

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans played the 2016 season with one of the best defenses in football as well as one of the worst ofsesnes. They have spent the current offseason trying to solidify the former and fix the latter. On the defense, the Texans promoted both Romeo Crennel and Mike Vrabel. On offense, they fired offensive coordinator George Godsey.

Now instead of replacing Godsey, the Texans are reportedly going to be relying on head coach Bill O’Brien to run the offense. SportsRadio 610’s John McClain is reporting that O’Brien will take over play-calling duties on offense for 2017 and will forego hiring a coordinator for the offense. They will also promote Wide Receiver’s coach Sean Ryan to coach the quarterbacks.

No word on if Ryan will still coach the wide receivers or will focus solely on the quarterbacks.

O’Brien did take over play calling for some time during the Texans 2016 season, but it is widely believed that Godsey regained control shortly after and retained it for the rest of the season.
