    College attended:
    University of Maine, where he played Tight End.

    Career stints:
    • New York Jets, Scout from 99-04.
    • Dallas Cowboys, Dir of Pro Scouts from 05-07.
    • Miami Dolphins, Asst Dir of Pro Personnel from 08-10.
    • Miami Dolphins, Director of Player Personnel for 2011.
    • Miami Dolphins, Asst GM from 12-13
    • Houston Texans, Dir of Player Personnel.

    Now that he’s officially the new General Manager of the Houston Texans, I hereby welcome him and wish him the best of luck. He will need it the way the franchise is structured, according to most of you.

    Anyway, feel free to b*tch about him being the new GM, welcome him, or tell us how to feel about the guy here. (Not that it’ll change anything)

    He's just a Bill O'Brien yes man IMO.

    He's gonna align the scouting department with OB's philosophy.

    Well, we shall see. I wonder how instrumental he was in the Bills’ turnaround though?

    Couldn't have been too instrumental. He didn't get there until sometime in May, right? That was after the draft and FA.

    That's correct. The Bills' GM and Gaine were hired mid May.

    Brian Gaine let it be known that the upcoming draft is a collaborative effort with O’Brien and Gaine shared a clear vision on O’Brien's role concerning personnel. The Texans will continue to allow the coaching staff to be part of the evaluation process leading up the draft. That means they will help interview, grade, and work out players. That information, along with what the scouts will put together, provides a clearer picture heading into the draft.


    Gaine discussed a key step in the process.


    “….And then as we move through our meetings in February and April, it’ll be my job and Coach (Bill) O’Brien’s job to consensus build that information and the evaluation process so that when we put a grade on a guy, we put a ranking on a player, that’s a Texans grade, that’s not a coaching grade, that’s not a personnel department grade, that’s a Texans grade.”

    ...

    It appears that O’Brien will be working with Gaine to build the draft board heading to the NFL Draft. That part of O’Brien’s job duties was never revealed before or whether he even had that duty with the previous general manager. Either way, O’Brien is going to have a heavy hand in helping Gaine build the organization’s draft board.

    There was plenty of chatter regarding the new direction of the team but also some concern that Gaine is nothing more than a “yes” man to O’Brien. There is a clear connection at the hip with O’Brien and this will be a clear extension of O’Brien’s vision for the team.

    Interesting this Gaine fellow.

    Seems to say the right things. Seems to be in touch with the current state of football as he ranked the QB over the O-line as priority.

    I like the hire, he was my 2nd choice.

    Wonder why the McNair's weren't at the press conference? Strange

    For some reason their absence at the press conference made me wonder if we might hear something soon about Bob McNair's health.

    A "Texans grade". Wow they are going to brand it, an maybe even go legal with it, you know trademark it.
    OK so not a coaching grade, not a personnel department grade, that’s a Texans grade.

    Maybe because he’s grading the TEXANS? Jesus Christ, it’s not exactly brain surgery!
