Report: Bill O'Brien To Call Plays On Offense For Houston Texans

The Texans' new offensive coordinator. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

BOB will be taking full command of the Texans offense this coming season. Did somebody say tight ends?

Houston Texans beat reporter John McClain dropped an interesting nugget while teasing his Sunday interview with Bill O'Brien:

O'Brien has been billed as a topflight innovator on the offensive side of the ball and is largely credited with the NFL's recent obsession with multiple tight end sets. As a playcaller, O'Brien helmed an offensive attack so unbelievably effective in New England that it carried a historically bad Patriots defense all the way to the Super Bowl, only to get thwarted by Eli Manning (again). Billy O's chance for revenge will conveniently come in his first year as a playcaller for Houston, when the Texans take on the Giants as part of their out-of-conference slate with the NFC East.

If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of thousands of fantasy football players furiously googling Ryan Griffin.
