Looks like Bill O'Brien has another reason to celebrate the new year. The Penn State head coach will replace Gary Kubiak in the Houston Texans:
Filed to ESPN from me and @mortreport: Bill O'Brien has reached agreement to become the new head coach of the Houston Texans, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 1, 2014
O'Brien does get props for his two-year stay at Penn State. He helped refocus a program that's been devastated by the Jerry Sandusky scandal, and led them to 15-9 overall record.
