Brian Gaine Biography
Brian Gaine is an American football executive who served as the general manager of the Houston Texans of the National Football League (NFL) from 2018 to 2019.
Gaine had a close working relationship with head coach Bill O’Brien, served a brief stint leading the Texans’ front office, taking over general manager duties in January 2018 after former general manager Rick Smith took a leave of absence in 2018 to take care of his wife Tiffany, who died of cancer in January 2019.
Before taking the general manager job in Houston, he spent time working as a scout or front office executive for the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, starting as a scout with the Jets in 1999. Gaine was also the Texans’ director of player personnel from 2014-16.
On June 7, 2019, Gaine was fired by the Texans after only one season.
He is the second NFL general manager to be fired under unorthodox circumstances this offseason. The Jets fired Mike Maccagnan in May after he too oversaw his team’s draft and free agency moves.Brian Gaine Photo
Maccanagan’s firing occurred amid reports of conflict with first-year head coach Adam Gase, who is acting as the team’s interim general manager until they find a replacement.
Brian Gaine Fired
The Houston Texans announced on Friday June 7, 2019 that they have fired general manager Gaine. The team announced the news in a statement from CEO Cal McNair:
“After a thorough evaluation of our football operations, we have decided to relieve Brian Gaine of his duties as general manager,” Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement issued by the franchise.
“Brian is a man of high character and we appreciate his contributions to our organization. We will begin an immediate search for a new GM. In the interim, Football Operations will be led by Senior Vice President of Football Administration Chris Olsen.”
The team acknowledged in the statement the unconventional timing of the firing that came after Gaine oversaw the team’s draft and free agency:
“While the timing may be unusual, this decision was made in the best interest of our organization in our quest to build a championship team for the City of Houston.”
The timing of this decision is extremely unusual, with training camp soon to start. April marked Brian Gaine’s first draft with picks in the top 100 to use, and a large war chest with which to extend Jadeveon Clowney, among others, and sign free agents.
