The Houston Texans took drastic action to address their 0-4 start to the season.
The team fired coach and general manager Bill O'Brien on Monday, a person with knowledge of the move told USA TODAY Sports' Mike Jones. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to reveal the decision.
Hired in 2014, O'Brien had led the Texans to the playoffs in four of the previous six seasons, including the last two, as Houston's head coach. He served as the de facto general manager in 2019 but officially earned the title in January.
The Texans dropped to 0-4 with a 31-23 loss to the previously winless Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

After the game, O'Brien said he was not concerned about his job status.
"All I can control is what I can control, and I've got to do a better job with the team," O'Brien said Monday. "That's obvious. And we're going to work hard to do that."
