HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans have abruptly fired general manager Brian Gaine less than 18 months after he took the job.
The team announced the move Friday with a statement from team owner Cal McNair, who said only that "while the timing may be unusual, this decision was made in the best interest of the organization in our quest to build a championship team."
Gaine was hired to replace Rick Smith in January 2018. The Texans went 11-5 in his first season in charge after he spent the 2017 as vice president of player personnel for the Buffalo Bills.
Senior vice president of football administration Chris Olsen will run the team's football operations while the Texans search for a new general manager.
