Bill O’Brien will serve as GM of Texans in 2020 in addition to head coach

The Texans announced on Tuesday that O’Brien will serve as the team’s general manager going forward in addition to head coach.

The Texans tried to hire Patriots executive Nick Caserio away from New England for their GM job last year, and there have been indications that Bill Belichick is holding a grudge against O’Brien over it. Caserio’s contract is set to expire soon, so many thought it was only a matter of time before he ended up in Houston. That seems unlikely to happen now.
