Bill O’Brien Arrives in Houston, Speaks for First Time Since Leaving Penn State

Bill O’Brien has landed in Texas.

The now former Penn State head football coach flew into George Bush Intercontinental Airport today, and will officially become the head coach of the Houston Texans tomorrow afternoon, where the team will introduce him with an introductory news conference.

When he arrived at the airport, O’Brien was predictably blitzed by the media. Lucky for us, Houston Chronicle NFL reporter John McClain was there, and tweeted some of O’Brien’s quotes from the impromptu presser.

 

Ah, yes. The great and prestigious Houston Texans organization. As any NFL fan will tell you, the Texans have been one of the NFL’s gold standards since the team began play in 2002. Some highlights: an 81-155 (41.3 percent) all-time record, two playoff appearances, and three winning records in 12 years of being a professional football organization.

Note the quote “It’s all about winning.” He left a seven win college football team with a legitimate shot of doing something special in the next year or two for an NFL team that won two games and is picking first in the 2014 Draft.

In all seriousness, there’s still a lot that needs to play out in the next few days, and emotions are still high among the entire Penn State community. Like usual, O’Brien’s answers to the media’s questions were smart and calculated, and nothing he said was particularly surprising. We’ll have more coverage from his official press conference tomorrow.
