Texans GM Rick Smith taking extended family medical leave

01 January, 2018, 03:12 | Author: John Swanson

Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith announced Sunday that he will take an extended leave of absence in order to care for his ailing wife. He determined his wife and three children now needed him more than football.

The drama surrounding the Houston Texans internal battle between GM Rick Smith and coach Bill O'Brien has temporarily resolved itself with an unfortunate twist.

Furthermore, resuming a replay will take you to where you left off, so you no longer need to watch them from the beginning. That's frustrating in any game, but in PUBG , it's a problem that can wipe out your entire match progress in an instant.

In the statement, Smith said that it was hard decision and that he is grateful for the support of Texans owner Bob McNair and his family, via Amy Palcic from the team's PR staff. "This was an extremely hard decision for me to make as I love this organization and every member of this team bath on and off the field".

Houston struggled to a 4-12 finish this season, however, and there are questions regarding whether Smith will be back with the team in 2018. Smith also had his contract extended a year ago through the 2020 season. The Texans have finished with a losing record only four times since then while also making four playoff appearances. Sure there's going to be some issues arise when it comes to O'Brien's future in Houston and who he will now talk with as it relates to said future.

MacDonald also says that walk-ins are always welcome especially around this time of year, and says most people are in and out within an hour.

The Giants have made it clear they would like to hire a new coach with head coaching or significant coordinator experience, and O'Brien has both.

After Sunday's loss to the Colts, O'Brien called his first losing season as an National Football League coach "absolutely brutal".
