Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

O'Brien literally will battle for his players. He almost came to blows with Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald on the field during a game in 2012 when they disagreed over an officiating decision. Both Irish Catholics - O'Brien from Boston, Fitzgerald from Chicago - neither would back down until separated.

Later that season, according to John Bacon's book "Fourth and Long," one of the Nittany Lions' leaders, an upperclassman who become an early O'Brien convert and chased rival recruiters off campus, suffered a severe knee injury. O'Brien visited him after the game, the coach shaking so badly he couldn't hold the player's hand. O'Brien left the room in tears.

McNair may or may not have hired a good head football coach. He hired a good man.
