    Texans Director Of Player Personnel Brian Gaine Interviewing For 49ers GM Job

    Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans are back-to-back division champions and that can draw attention from teams trying to get to that spot. So is the case with the San Francisco 49ers and their open general manager position.
    SportsRadio 610 has learned that Texans director of pro personnel Brian Gaine is interviewing for the open position with the Bay Area team.

    The 49ers released GM Trent Baalke after the team’s 2-14 record this season their second straight sub-.500 season.

    Gaine joined the Texans in 2014 as the director of college scouting and was promoted before the 2015 season to director of player personnel. Gaine has interviewed for GM jobs in the past, also heading to Philadelphia after the 2014 season to see about being the GM for the Eagles, before staying with the Texans.
    Director of Pro Personnel... think John Simon, Brian Peters, Oday Aboushi, Akeem Hunt, Akeem Dent, Jeff Adams, Josh Walker, Charles James, Don Jones, Jumal Rolle, Darryl Morris...

    Brian Gaine was the guy responsible for scouting/signing roster supporting "pro personnel" players over the years.
    In 2016 Brock Osweiler was rated last (32nd) among all QBs (>400 attempts) by ProFootballFocus and ranked 33rd/34 QBs (>200 attempts) by Football Outsiders.

    So....promote Mr. GAINES to Texans GM, and promote Rick Smith to something not directly involved with the team. Win/win.

        Has he been passed over each time or did he decline each of those offers?

          He'd have taken a GM job had one been offered.

              He has interviewed I think for at least 4 open GM jobs, one of them will eventually stick.

              Should think long/hard about working for Pegulas -- both the owner and his wife are extremely involved in decision-making for their sports teams.

                          Had heard this was coming. Seemed unlikely due to lateral move, but league sources made it clear Gaine was seeking a fresh start w/#Bills.

                          Highly regarded. Was a true ally of O'Brien w/#Texans. Had heard rumors #49ers delayed hiring GM/HC b/c they wanted O'Brien/Gaine tandem.

                            "Bills hire Brandon Beane as GM."

                            "We've hired Brian Gaine as our new Vice President of Player Personnel."

                            I guess that makes him a Beane counter...

                              Great... he should have been our GM awhile back and he is good at finding players that fit the system and mentality that staff needs.

                              H2O4ME, any idea if Smith has his job too now till the FO replaces him? And being OBs right hand is this in your opinion anything revolving around OB leaving? Seems that the words "wanted to start with a different team" says something just not sure what
