According to Adam Schefter, Bill O’Brien and new General Manager Brian Gaine have signed five-year contracts with the Texans.

Locally, John McClain and Mark Berman are also reporting Gaine and O’Brien have reached agreement with the Texans on new contracts:

The contracts keep both guys locked up in Houston through the 2022 season. Gaine’s deal is new five-year contract cementing a hire that was leaked a few days ago, while O’Brien’s is a four-year extension to add to the final year left on the original five year contract he signed when he became the head coach of the Texans back in January of 2014.

Gaine spent last season with the Bills as Vice President of Player Personnel after three seasons with the Texans’ front office. He reportedly has a strong relationship with O’Brien; the two seem allegedly see eye-to-eye on more than O’Brien did with Rick Smith.

These are your decision-makers for the next five seasons, Houston. What do you think about the contracts?
