Through seven seasons as the head coach of the Houston Texans, Bill O’Brien amassed a 52-48 overall record. He was fired early in the 2020 season after leading the team to an 0-4 start.
In addition to his NFL head coaching experience, he also served two seasons as a head coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions from 2012-13. Before that, he worked as an offensive assistant/coordinator under Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
In his first season as an offensive coordinator under Nick Saban, O’Brien helped a talented Crimson Tide offense to a National Championship appearance.
Who do you think should be the Jaguars’ next head coach?
