No championship games thread? Strange.

But if the Browns are waiting to interview and possibly hire Adam Gase as HC, they'll actually do something very smart (for a change).

Smith said his initial impression of O'Brien has been very positive.

O'Brien said he'll call plays for Texans, so position will likely go unfilled.

Asked if #Texans will hire an OC, Smith said that's a question for O'Brien to answer.

Smith said #Texans' coaching staff still not finalized.

Duo watched morning practice from stands, returned for afternoon session together.

#Texans' Bill O'Brien has spent day at Senior Bowl practice joined by right-hand man Jim Bernhardt. #NFL

I'm also curious as to whether a new ST coordinator will be brought in, or if they'll just turn that over to Ligashesky in 2014.

At this point I'm more interested in that and the status of the QB coach (As in - are they going to have one?) than I am the OC position.

Seems like a strange inference on Brian Smith's part. There are plenty of head coaches who call plays but still have OCs.

Only relevant because OB heaps praise on the man, but still find timing interesting...

Bernhardt is an everyday visitor to O’Brien’s practices to give his opinion on how the practices are run by O’Brien.

Bernhardt first came into contact with O’Brien when he was his position coach at Brown University when he coached linebackers and was the team’s defensive coordinator from 1990-1992"
