HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) - The Houston Texans have fired general manager, Brian Gaine, less than two years into his five-year contract.

“After a thorough evaluation of our football operations, we have decided to relieve Brian Gaine of his duties as general manager. Brian is a man of high character and we appreciate his contributions to our organization. We will begin an immediate search for a new GM. In the interim, Football Operations will be led by Senior Vice President of Football Administration Chris Olsen. While the timing may be unusual, this decision was made in the best interest of our organization in our quest to build a championship team for the City of Houston.”

Gaine was with the Texans from 2014-2017 as the vice president of player personnel, left for the Bills for a year, and was hired as the general manager of the Texans in January 2018.
