Bill O'Brien says he's handing over playcalling duties for the Houston Texans to offensive coordinator Tim Kelly next season.

"[Kelly is] a really bright guy," O'Brien said. "He's a really good coach. Players really respect him. He just does a great job. Great knowledge of the whole offense from the passing game to the running game."

O'Brien had been calling the offensive plays since he took the role over from former offensive coordinator George Godsey in September 2016. He was given the additional title of general manager in January.

Kelly is headed into second season as Houston's offensive coordinator.
