Bill O’Brien Regrets Taking GM Duties With Texans

Bill O’Brien is the new head coach of Boston College. It’s also impossible to forget about his time at the NFL level and the former Texans coach reflected upon the time he took over GM duties in Houston.

During a recent podcast, O’Brien admitted taking on GM duties was a horrible decision. One that definitely cost him his job.

“That was a tough time in Houston,” O’Brien told Adam Breneman. “We were a good team, we made some decisions relative to the organization to try to fill the GM role, we went after some guys, we couldn’t get them, at the end of the day we went a full year really without a GM . . . and then there was a year we just said, ‘We’ll make you the GM.’ In the end, that’s not who I am.”

“I didn’t really enjoy being the GM,” O’Brien said. “I didn’t enjoy negotiating contracts. In some respects, I lost relationships with some of the guys that I was coaching because I didn’t enjoy that. In my opinion, there’s very few guys in the history of football that can ever do that — and they’re the greatest of the greats. I feel like I’m a good coach, I know how to coach, but those things I’m not great at. I can evaluate talent, I know how to evaluate talent, but I shouldn’t be negotiating contracts and things like that. So in the end, that was a mistake by me. I really wish I didn’t do that to be really honest with you.”

Good for Billy O for being accountable here. There are a ton of horrendous GMs at the NFL level. I’m not sure anybody trumps the horrors of what he created with the Texans. This post I did in the past does a pretty good job summarizing the mess he made with the Texans.

The resume is ugly… You can see it for yourself in that link above.
