Penn State coach Bill O'Brien is set to interview with the Houston Texans for their head coaching vacancy, per NFL Network.
O'Brien has been at Penn State for two years after he was the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. According to NFL Network's Ian Rappoport, the interview is scheduled for after Christmas -- meaning it could have already taken place.
Earlier this year, O'Brien's buyout for an NFL job was reduced from $13 million to $6.5 million. That's certainly a number much more palatable to NFL teams.
Filed to ESPN from me and
Houston Texans, per sources.
Bill O'Brien's introductory news conference is Friday at 11.
