Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC
"The offense that he teaches is complex," Ferguson said. "He doesnít overwhelm you with it. He does a great job of going step by step but also keeping up a good pace. ... He understood everything that we went through. He tried to coach us as if he would be the one playing out there. He would try to put himself in our shoes and try to make it easy for us."
It's interesting that Ferguson felt that way given that O'Brien never played the position, or any offensive position. He spent a lot of one-on-one time with the quarterbacks.
So what did he do when they messed up?
"Itís one of those things, if itís your first time making a mistake, he teaches you what to do better, how to do better," Ferguson said. "But if itís the fourth, fifth time making a mistake, heís going to be angry. ... Like any coach. Just letting you have it for a quick second then move on. He doesnít dwell on things. Heís a good guy to be around."
