Default Brian Gaine promoted to Director of Player Personnel



John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL
Quote:
Rick Smith has to find a replacement for Maccagnan now that he's secured Gaine for at least another season.

Rick Smith said last week he didn't want to lose Gaine and Mike Maccagnan, who's the Jets new GM. Gaine interviewed with Bears and Eagles.

Sports Radio 610 first reported Gaine's promotion. He interviewed with Eagles Chip Kelly last week for GM job but is staying with Texans.

Texans GM Rick Smith has promoted pro personnel director Brian Gaine to director of player personnel. Gaine gets new contact and raise.
Looks like Rick created a new position/title.

Irrrelevant. On this MB, any good personnel move will be credited to Gaine, and any failed personnel move will still be Rick Smith's fault.

Until a year or so have passed and then Gaine will become the new most hated

Actually, the duties of a typical GM have been split between Gaine, who is excellent in identifying personnel and Smith, who is excellent at the contract and budget side of the job. I'm hopeful this will place each in the position to excel at what he does best.

This should make an interesting draft room. I suspect they expect a consensus model to determine their course of action with Bob stepping in to settle irreconcilable differences (Hopefully non existent or at least rare) as he always has.

I don't understand why Gaines would stay. He could be the man in Philly. Instead he is working for a man who answers to the man.

I can't imagine how much they would have to offer for me to accept a lesser job.

He would be GM in name only in Philly. Chip Kelly would have more control over personnel. He would report to Chip.

Is Brian Gaine a werewolf or a vampire? Because depending on what he is, he could be making different decisions.

Not sure why folks are assuming Smith will be any less involved in the draft/player acquisition.

Yep, this is a one year situation. Gaine will be a GM of an NFL organization a year from now... either Texans or somewhere else, imo.

Rick's title hasn't changed.

Regarding Gaine I believe this will be the case.

Hopefully Gaine/BOB will be the decision makers on the personel decisions. If this happens the Texans future will be in great hands. I'm a big fan of Gaine and haven't been this excited about the future of the Texans since Kubiak was hired.
