Over the weekend, word was that new Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien had fired all of the Texans assistants from Gary Kubiak's staff. Then there was talk that perhaps one unknown assistant would be retained:

Now things are starting to clear up. From Dave Zangaro of CSN Houston, here's a list of coaches who are leaving Penn State (presumably to join O'Brien's staff in Houston) and the identity of the one current Texans assistant coach who may remain a member of the Texans' coaching staff:
Receivers coach Stan Hixon, assistant Jim Bernhardt, running backs coach Charles London, safeties coach Anthony Midget, strength coach Craig Fitzgerald and defensive coordinator John Butler have all resigned from Penn State.
According to FightOnState.com, Butler is coming to Houston to coach defensive backs.
According to reports, the only position coach who has been retained is defensive line coach Bill Kollar.
It should be noted that the Texans have not announced any new hires or confirmed that Kollar was the sole survivor of the regime change. Nevertheless, your thoughts on these staff developments?
