O’Brien infamously traded Watson’s top pass-catcher DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals during the 2020 offseason. The move was one of many — including traded two first-round picks for left tackle Laremy Tunsil — that led to O’Brien’s undoing in Houston.

Caserio will be tasked with hiring a head coach for Houston. There are no shortage of excellent options, including Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
