John McClain reports that the new head coach of your Houston Texans, a gentleman by the name of Bill O'Brien, arrived in town this afternoon. Some of what O'Brien had to say to the media at the airport:
"I’m excited to be here," O’Brien told reporters. "This is a great opportunity with a great organization."
"In your lifetime, you only get certain opportunities so many times," he continued. "This is a great opportunity to work with an owner like Mr. McNair and an organization like the Texans. It is a very exciting time for myself and my family.
"We’ll work very hard to field a very competitive team," O’Brien said. "Everything we do as a team will be about winning.
"We’ll get started real soon."
The Texans' official Twitter account announced that an 11 a.m. CST news conference will be held at Reliant Park tomorrow:
The Houston Texans will hold a press conference Friday at 11 a.m. The press conference will be shown live on http://t.co/aasjw5cnjK.— Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) January 2, 2014
Logic says that's either going to be Bill O'Brien's introductory news conference or the team is going to advise the public that it's finally retiring Petey Faggins' number. One or the other.
In the meantime, do you want to hear what a former teammate had to say about the man he calls "OB"? Read John Harris' analysis here. Be prepared to desperately want the 2014 season to start tomorrow after reading, though.
