Report: Texans head coach Bill O'Brien interested in Maryland vacancy

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is "very intrigued" by the coaching vacancy at Maryland, according to a report from Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com

O'Brien, whose Texans are 3-5 but still in the mix to win the weak AFC South, is reportedly at odds with the front office in Houston and his time there could soon be coming to an end.

Before coming to Houston, O'Brien was the head coach at Penn State for two seasons where he went 15-9. He had a brief stint at Maryland in the early 2000s as the program's running backs coach. 

O'Brien would fit the mold of the type of coach that athletic director Kevin Anderson outlined when the search for a coach began -- someone who is young in relative terms and has a background as an offensive-minded coach.

Maryland fired head coach Randy Edsall after the team's loss to Ohio State last month. Since then, offensive coordinator Mike Locksley has taken over head coaching duties in an interim role and the Terrapins have gone 0-4. Two games remain, at home vs. Indiana and on the road against Rutgers.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.
