Days before his Texans are set to take on the Chiefs in Kansas City, a video of Houston coach Bill O’Brien going off on a heckler after a loss at home to the Denver Broncos in Week 14 has surfaced.

The loss, which came a week after the Texans beat the Patriots, dropped the Texans to 8-5 at the time and kept both the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts alive in the AFC South division title race. Judging from the video, which was taken from inside the tunnel at NRG Stadium as Houston left the field, O’Brien was in no mood to take any guff following the upset loss.

“You suck, too,” O’Brien can be heard saying, ostensibly in response to being told that he sucked first. “You suck, too, motherf*cker. You suck, too. F*ck you.”

A security guard can be seen hustling the 50-year-old coach into the tunnel that leads to the locker room, but was unable to silence him, with the profanity continuing even after O’Brien leaves the frame.

With the video going viral, O’Brien was forced to apologize. “I used inappropriate language and I just want to apologize for that,” he said at a press conference. “I’m sorry that it happened.”

Since the loss, the Texans have gone 3-1 and won a playoff game over Buffalo last weekend.

The Texans will look to keep the momentum going against the Chiefs on Sunday.
