The Houston Texans have fired head coach Bill Oâ€™Brien after an 0-4 start.
Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel will replace Oâ€™Brien as an interim head coach.
Crennel has head coach experience leading both the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns.
Prior to this yearâ€™s disastrous start, Houston had some consistency under Oâ€™Brien.
The Texans finished above .500 in five of his previous six seasons, made four playoff appearances, and won the AFC South each year they made the postseason.
Otherwise, Oâ€™Brien has a history of poor decision making, like giving up two first-round picks to bring in troubled offensive lineman Laramy Tunsil.
Oâ€™Brien also gave up maybe the leagueâ€™s top receiver Deâ€™Andre Hopkins, which rattled the teamâ€™s fan base and caused a rift.
The Texans have a conference matchup next week against Jacksonville.
