Texans’ Watt declines to discuss exchange with fired O’Brien

Houston Texans star J.J. Watt reportedly had a heated exchange with Bill O’Brien less than two weeks before Monday’s firing of the head coach and general manager.ESPN reported that the argument occurred during a practice leading up to the team’s Week 3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver also was part of the incident that has been pinpointed as the moment when O’Brien “lost the team.”Watt, a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, said Wednesday that he is looking forward to a “fresh start.” But he declined to discuss the report of the practice incident.”I’m not going to talk about what happened at practice or what conversations were had or whatever it may be,” Watt said. “The situation is what the situation is and we … right now have a fresh start and we had a good practice today and we’re looking forward to (playing) Jacksonville.”The Texans are 0-4 after losing to the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday. O’Brien was fired the next day with a 52-48 regular-season record. Houston reached the playoffs in four of his six full seasons.Romeo Crennel is serving as interim coach entering Sunday’s game against the visiting Jaguars.”When you’re 0-4, obviously things need to change. I mean, it wasn’t working,” said Watt, who is in his 10th season with the Texans. “I appreciate and respect what we had. We won four division titles in six years with Bill and I appreciate that and that time, but obviously this year, we’re 0-4 and stuff wasn’t working.”
