O'Brien and Smith apparently have disagreed on the direction the franchise should take, with reports that one of the two would have to go.
Plenty has been out of O'Brien's control this season, who has otherwise produced a largely successful string of seasons for the Texans since taking over prior to the 2014-15 season.
They will apparently retain him again for 2018, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who writes that while O'Brien is likely to be back, there are "issues" to be worked out with his contract.
The Texans lost Sunday to the Indianapolis Colts, 22-13, finishing a frustrating season with a 4-12 record.
The Texans just could not catch a break this season, but they have the pieces to their fortunes around quickly. O'Brien recently said that he would "never" quit his job as Houston's head coach, and fortunately for him, it looks like he won't even have to worry about that right now.
"A third source with knowledge of the situation said he would be "kind of surprised" if the Texans don't make a change".
