Texans and Vikings have reportedly contacted Bill O’Brien

The Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings have reportedly contacted Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien about potentially being their coach in 2014.

Houston has a vacancy after firing Gary Kubiak on December 6. Minnesota still has a coach in Leslie Frazier, though he only has one more season left on his contract. There had been speculation, prior to the reports on O’Brien, that the Vikings would buy out Frazier’s final year.

If a team is to sign O’Brien, it will face an expensive buyout. Penn State negotiated a $7.73 million buyout for any NFL team that poaches their head coach after the 2013 season. The number declines every subsequent season, going down to $3.41 million in 2014, $3.3 million in 2015 and $1.73 million in 2016.

O’Brien has gone 15-9 in two seasons at Penn State. He took over leading the Nittany Lions in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Prior to procuring the head coaching position with Penn State, O’Brien spent five seasons in the New England Patriots organization.
