Bill O’Brien has had a tough year. O’Brien was named head coach and general manager of the Houston Texans prior to the 2020 season. However, following an 0-4 record to begin the 2020 season, O’Brien was fired from the Houston Texans. Despite this, things might be looking up as Bill O’Brien is expected to become the Alabama offensive coordinator.

 

Needless to say, the college football coaching carousel is alive and well.

Change Of Scenery For Bill O’Brien

This is a great move by Bill O’Brien to nab the premier coordinator job in Alabama. O’Brien should have his pick of top college head coaching gigs after a few successful seasons at Alabama.

Lane Kiffin, also a former Saban offensive coordinator, spent a handful of seasons at Florida Atlantic before leaving for the head coaching job at Ole Miss. The University of Texas has tapped Steve Sarkisian to become the next head coach. Needless to say, there’s a precedent for Alabama coordinators moving up.

Furthermore, Kirby Smart, Jim McElwain, Major Applewhite, and Jeremy Pruitt are other examples.

Smart Move By Alabama?

For the University of Alabama, they’re able to bring in a successful NFL head coach. Say what you will about his final years in Houston, but Bill O’Brien was able to win division championships, and as a result, put the Texans into the Playoffs. While it’s still too early to predict what will happen, O’Brien should help the university continue to put offensive talent into the NFL.

Ultimately, this is a win-win for both parties. O’Brien will be able to take a step back and focus solely on coaching. Meanwhile, the Alabama Crimson Tide get a solid offensive-mind at coordinator.
