Bill O'Brien's first week on the job continued Thursday with a special lunch.

The Texans' new head coach took a quick break and along with his wife Colleen and team founder/chairman/CEO Bob McNair, dined with President George H.W. Bush. The Commander-in-Chief from 1989-1993 is a regular at Reliant Stadium when the Texans play, and a friend of McNair's.

President Bush wanted to meet the new man in charge, and invited him to his Houston office.

"It was a lot of fun because Coach O'Brien had called his father and mother before he came over," McNair said Thursday. "He said 'Mom, Dad, you can't believe where I'm going. I'm going to have lunch with President Bush.'"

The O'Briens and McNair were also treated to a bit of the President's humor and sartorial individuality.

"Of course, the first thing he showed us were his socks," McNair said. "He was wearing Texans socks. He had to pull his pants up so we could see that and get a picture."

McNair said during the lunch that President Bush asked O'Brien about the staff of assistants he's gathering, as well as other plans for the upcoming year.
