Report: Deal For Bill O'Brien To Become Houston Texans Head Coach "Imminent"

I'm ready for a presser at Reliant Park and a Texans backdrop, thankyouverymuch. - Reid Compton-US PRESSWIRE

As Texans fans continue to sweat the search for a new head coach, we now have a report from a respected journalist saying a deal for Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien to take over at Reliant Park is "imminent."

We've all been scouring Twitter throughout the day for a morsel of news about the Texans' pursuit of current Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien as it relates to Houston's head coaching vacancy. Though third-hand at best, I'd say this qualifies:

"Imminent" is better than "working on a deal," isn't it? ISN'T IT?

I need a hobby.
