After the Texans’ OTA on Wednesday, coach Bill O’Brien was asked if J.J. Watt would insist on being called “Dr. Watt” since the defensive end received an honorary doctorate degree from Baylor College of Medicine.
“He wrote me up a prescription this morning,” O’Brien said. “He told me to take three chill pills a day and call him in the morning. I thought I’ve been more chilled out, but I guess he doesn’t think so.”
Watt was honored in graduation ceremonies at Jones Hall with a Doctor of Humanities in Medicine degree awarded to “individuals who have provided exceptional support or service, either directly or indirectly, to Baylor College of Medicine or to academic medicine as a whole and to the community at large.”
