O’Brien joined the Crimson Tide last season as the team’s offensive coordinator and helped create a top 10 offense nationally as the team went on its way to a national championship appearance. He also helped Bryce Young become the first quarterback in the history of the program to win the Heisman Trophy.
Prior to joining Alabama, O’Brien has seven years of head coaching experience at the NFL level with all seven coming with the Houston Texans. Across his tenure there, O’Brien finished with a record 52-48 with four playoff appearances before being fired four games into the 2020 season.
