Bill O'Brien, Texans Reportedly Negotiating Contract Extension

The Houston Texans are close to naming Brian Gaine as the team's general manager.

Smith has taken an extended leave of absence to be with his wife, who has breast cancer. Once that happens, John McLain of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that an extension for head coach O'Brien will become a priority.

The Texans began negotiations to hire Gaine, Buffalo's vice president of player personnel, late Wednesday afternoon and would like to have the deal wrapped up by Friday or early next week, according to people familiar with the situation.

For somebody who shied away from social media until July this year, Katrina Kaif has taken to it quite smoothly. Khan had announced on the New Year s eve that title of the film was to be made public on the first day of 2018.

One thing that impressed the committee in the interview was how in tune Gaine was to the Texans' philosophy of how to run personnel and football operations and what they want to do to win.

Gaine's familiarity with Houston helped him land the job after spending 2014-16 with the team as the director of player personnel, in charge of supervising all pro player evaluations, scouting processes and transactional movement across the league. He held scouting and personnel positions with the Bills, Cowboys, Jets and Dolphins and, most recently, served as the Bills' vice president of player personnel in 2017 after being hired away from the Texans in May of past year. This week's Texans interview will finally produce a GM opportunity for Gaine. He started with the New York Jets, and five years later he moved on to work with the Dallas Cowboys from 2005 to 2007 and then with the Miami Dolphins from 2008 to 2013. He's interviewed for openings with the Bills, 49ers, Eagles, Bears and Jets.
