Bill O'Brien has taken a lot of flack this offseason. That's generally what happens when you trade a superstar wide receiver for below market value. But don't count former Houston Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu among his detractors.

In fact, Mathieu actually stood up for O'Brien via Instagram comments.

Mathieu confirmed that O'Brien wanted him back after his year with the team. And why wouldn't he? Mathieu tallied 89 tackles, 3 sacks and 2 interceptions during his lone year with the team.

It's also good to see O'Brien maintain a strong relationship with a star player, as some have criticized him for his relationship with DeAndre Hopkins.

Texans fans have to love seeing someone stick up for their head coach.
