What is the Impact of Bill O'Brien's Firing for the Texans?

Video Duration:

Texan’s Head Coach Bill O'Brien is the first coach to be fired this NFL season.

The team owner Cal McNair announced on Monday that, "I want to sincerely thank Bill O'Brien and his family for their impact on our franchise. Bill proved himself as a coach and leader in this league. I spoke with him earlier today and told him we are moving in a different direction."

The Texans had a poor start to the year and are going into Week 5 0-4, so was the writing on the wall for this one? Sports Illustrated host Kaitlin O’Toole is joined by SI’s senior writer Albert Breer for insight on O’Brien being fired and where the Texans go from here.
