Bill O'Brien has emerged as the overwhelming favorite to become the next coach of the Houston Texans, and the two sides are working to get a deal in place within the next week, league sources told ESPN.

O'Brien met with the Texans this week after Christmas at his home in Cape Cod, resulting in intensified discussions they hope will culminate with a finalized contract, the sources said.

As coach of Penn State in 2 years, O'Brien was named Big 10 Coach of the year in 2012, and finished this year with a 7-5 record while playing with a freshman quarterback.

Do you think O'Brien would be a good hire for the Texans?
