Report: Texans, Vikings contact O'Brien

The SportsXchange

The Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings contacted Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien, according to CBS Sports.

The Texans are looking for a new coach after recently firing Gary Kubiak.

The NFL Network reported that Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is not part of the team's future plans. Minnesota entered Sunday at 3-9-1 and is looking to make major changes in the offseason.

O'Brien is 15-9 in two seasons as Penn State's coach, despite working with fewer scholarships as part of the sanctions stemming from the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

O'Brien was the New England Patriots' offensive coordinator in 2011 and was an assistant with the team from 2007-10.
