The Houston Texans have fired head coach and general manager Bill O'Brien, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN and John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. In a statement by Houston Texans Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Cal McNair, Romeo Crennel will serve as the Texans interim head coach for the remainder of the 2020 season.

"Romeo Crennel will serve as our interim head coach for the remainder of the 2020 season," McNair said. "We have a talented team, and I have no doubt our players and staff will rally to make Texans fans proud as we aim to win championships and do great things for the city of Houston."

Over the course of his career, Crennel has served as head coach for two different organizations, the Cleveland Browns (2005-2008) and Kansas City Chiefs (2001-2012). Crennel holds a head coaching record of 28-55 through six seasons. His best stint came during the 2007 season when he led the Browns to a 10-6 record.

The news of O'Brien's firing came a day after the Texans (0-4) sustained their fourth consecutive loss to start the season following a 31-23 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings.
