This is by far the best news that the Texans could get! Our next coach looks like it is going to be Bill O'Brien. He has emerged as the overwhelming favorite to become the next coach, and the two sides are working to get a deal in place within the next week, league sources told ESPN.

"O'Brien met with the Texans this week after Christmas at his home in Cape Cod, resulting in intensified discussions they hope will culminate with a finalized contract, the sources said. The Texans still have a short list of candidates in case talks break down with the Penn State coach, sources added. The Texans had been doing due diligence on O'Brien, including his six-year stint with the New England Patriots. The feedback has been strong in his favor, sources said, which motivated Houston to commence negotiations to get a deal in place."
