Texans To Hire Brian Gaine As General Manager

After only one season with the Buffalo Bills, Brian Gaine is returning to the Houston Texans to become their new general manager, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Meanwhile, Gaine will be hired to replace Rick Smith, who took a year-long leave of absence to take care of his wife, Tiffany, who's undergoing treatment for breast cancer, and their three children.

He previously worked in Houston from 2014-16, the last two of those seasons as director of player personnel.

With few holes on the roster, especially for a 4-12 team, Gaine should be able to fine-tune the Texans this offseason to help them quickly back into contention.

O'Brien and his staff are coaching in the Senior Bowl on January 27. Houston does not have a pick in the first round of this year's draft because of a draft-day trade last year with the Browns that allowed the Texans to select Watson with the No. 12 pick.

Though the Texans cast a wide net, Gaine was the favorite from the start. This week's Texans interview will finally produce a GM opportunity for Gaine. Prior to that, he was the Texans' VP of player personnel. The Cowboys blocked the Texans from interviewing exec Will McClay.

Gaine worked under Bill Parcells with the Dallas Cowboys as the Assistant Director of Pro Scouting in 2005-07 and inside the scouting department with the Jets when Parcells was head coach in 1999 and GM in 2000.

Obviously, the Texans didn't want to wait for the other candidates to be available and they settled on Gaine.
