In the wake of the surprising firing of general manager Brian Gaine last Friday, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said it was a result of a exhaustive evaluation of the entire organization from chief operating officer Cal McNair, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

"That's a tough decision for Cal to make," O'Brien said Tuesday following a minicamp practice. "He did a thorough evaluation of the football operation and that included me. He was very clear with me on what we needed to do to grow as an organization. ..

"He's a humble person, very good at articulating what he wants, his vision, the improvements he thinks needs to be made relative to the whole building. He's not afraid to make tough decisions. He wants to win."

O'Brien was asked what this kind of dramatic change says about the direction of the franchise following an 11-win season and an AFC South division title.

"Cal did a thorough evaluation of the football program," O'Brien said. "I'm not saying he did it by himself. He made some tough decisions."
