    Completely blind-sided with this one. So much for alignment, I guess.
    I'm going to speculate that this is over contract extensions and players who were allowed to leave via FA.

    Texans fire G.M. Brian Gaine
    Posted by Josh Alper on June 7, 2019, 5:21 PM EDT

    The Texans made a major and unexpected change to the organization on Friday.

    The team announced that they have fired General Manager Brian Gaine.

    “After a thorough evaluation of our football operations, we have decided to relieve Brian Gaine of his duties as General Manager,” Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement. “Brian is a man of high character and we appreciate his contributions to our organization. We will begin an immediate search for a new G.M. In the interim, football operations will be led by senior vice president of football administration Chris Olsen. While the timing may be unusual, this decision was made in the best interest of our organization in our quest to build a championship team for the city of Houston.”

    Gaine was hired in January 2018 when former G.M. Rick Smith took a leave of absence to be with his wife as she battled cancer.

    The move leaves the Texans and the Jets both in need of a General Manager as their offseason programs come to an end. The Jets have interviewed several candidates who could concievably also wind up in the mix in Houston.

    I'm listening to 610 right now whn I hear this - is it April 1 !
    610 Speculating that BG has been a badboy in a moral or ethical sense.
    I dunno will SteelB apply for the open position ?
    Is Rick Smith coming back ? Inquiring minds want to know ?
    Cal is large and in charge !

    I'm down with firing OB, but who is out there to replace him? RAC as interim I can see but not as a full time replacement.

    1st thing I thought of when this came down. The next thing is he did some unethical ****...you don’t just dismiss a guy immediately like this unless something like that happens where the .org. Is trying to distance itself from the individual

    Wow this is insane. What the bleep happened? What the bleep is going on on Kirby Drive.

    And some thought Gaine and Obrien were on the same page.

    Must've been heated exchange somewhere
