The Houston Texans made a surprising decision when they chose to relieve former general manager Brian Gaine of his duties. For starters, it wasn’t widely known that Gaine and head coach Bill O’Brien weren’t getting along, but it also was odd because O’Brien played a part in Gaine getting hired.
While the latter is true, there is much more to that point that’s gone unnoticed. The Texans settled for Gaine after the New England Patriots blocked a Nick Caserio interview in early 2018.
It wasn’t like Gaine was the Texans top choice, they eventually settled on him because they couldn’t get their guy in Caserio.
