It appears that JJ Watt may have been responsible for forcing the Texans into finally firing head coach Bill O’Brien.

On Monday it was announced that O’Brien was being let go as the team’s head coach and GM.

According to a report from ESPN Houston radio host John Granato, Watt had gotten into a heated argument with O’Brien last week during practice which led to a revolt among players against O’Brien.

On Tuesday Watt posted a picture of the sun shining through NRG stadium which many felt was his reaction to O’Brien’s firing.

Update: The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson has confirmed Granato’s report and claims O’Brien also got into an argument with defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver as well as other coaches during practice.
