According to a report from John Reid of the Florida Times Union, the Jacksonville Jaguars will be interviewing the current Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator for the coaching vacancy next week after the CFP National Championship Game.
Alabama has done a fabulous job rolling up on the competition throughout 2021, and it can be argued O’Brien has had a hand in the offense’s productivity.
No matter how much winning O’Brien does in crimson, as far as the NFL is concerned, he will be remembered for his 54-52 record in deep steel blue.
Here are the best reactions from Twitter to the news O’Brien will be interviewing with the Jaguars.
Hilarious. How could you be a GM and want this guy in the building? I’d laugh so hard at this. https://t.co/Qt1prKeEow

Bill O’Brien shouldn’t be allowed within 5 ft of an NFL team after his crimes in Houston

To be clear, I'm not saying I think Bill O'Brien is an amazing coach necessarily. Do I think he's worth an interview? Definitely.

Jaguars give Bill O’Brien that job then I know they really aren’t serious about ever winning again.

Jaguars fans are dressing as clowns at the next game to protest how the organization is run.
Jaguars: Let's interview Bill O'Brien! https://t.co/zWOYeMA94s

Why are they Interviewing Bill O’Brien ? They must have lost a bet or something. 😂

Bill O'Brien, Trent Baalke, and the Jags belong together. https://t.co/4w3XceuZMj

Total 180 for the Jags going from a control feeak like Urban Meyer to noted non-control freak Bill O'Brien.

Trent Baalke and Bill O'Brien?

Bill O'Brien as an #NFL General Manager, terrible.
But Bill O'Brien as an #NFL Head Coach was not that bad.
5 out of 6 1/4 seasons with a winning record, 4 playoff appearances (two with bad QBs).
Has he earned another opportunity to be an NFL Head Coach?

And on a far more serious note, the fact that Bill O’Brien — who essentially left the Texans in a worse state than an expansion team — is getting a head coaching interview while Marvin Lewis remains on the outside looking in is nothing short of infuriating.

Bill O’Brien is two games over .500 for his NFL career. When people talk about coaching as a closed circle of retreads, this is what they mean. https://t.co/Gw46LeEb9o

If Shad doesn’t fire baalke and hires bill o’brien. It would literally be the biggest flops in NFL history after having all that draft capital and cap space with next to nothing to show for it and build off of. Damnit Shad just get some fresh blood in the building.

I think Bill O'Brien would be an excellent addition to the Jaguars. pic.twitter.com/Pm0vEJxRQ3

If Bill O’Brien is the next head coach of the Jaguars, not sure you want him controlling the roster. His decisions were questionable to put it incredibly lightly.
