"After a thorough evaluation of our football operations, we have chose to relieve Brian Gaine of his duties as general manager", McNair said Friday afternoon. Gaine served only a year as the Texans' GM, and Houston went 11-5 with an AFC South title.

Brian Gaine's tenure with the Texans didn't last long.

Gaine, who spent five seasons as a member of the Miami Dolphins front office, will now have to seek work outside of the traditional hiring cycle for National Football League executives. "We will begin an immediate search for a new GM".

We learned Friday that team chairman and CEO Cal McNair won't exercise the same patience his father, Bob, exhibited as the founding owner who hired just two general managers and three coaches through the team's first 16 seasons.

Gaine started his time with the Dolphins as their assistant director of pro scouting and by the time he left for Houston in 2014, he had worked all the way up to the team's assistant general manager.

Also in the statement, the Texans said in the interim that Chris Olsen, the team's senior vice president of football administration, would take over football operations.

It's unclear what led to Gaine's dismissal. It's tough to figure out what Gaine might have done wrong in that time.
