For those who want a new head coach for the Houston Texans, you might want to look away.

It’s no secret that Houston Texans head coach David Culley has had a brutal first season as an NFL head coach. Unfortunately, for those hoping to get a new skipper, you may have to wait a calendar year for that to happen.

According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, Nick Caserio may wait until the end of the 2022 season so that way the Texans biggest on-field job is more attractive to coaching candidates at that time (The quote is taken from an ESPN+ article, click here to read the original piece behind the paywall).

"“If general manager Nick Caserio has a difference-making head-coaching candidate in mind, he might be better off waiting until after the 2022 season, when the direction of the franchise has a little more clarity, if he wants to attract the best possible candidates.”– Dan Graziano, ESPN+"

That idea may seem significant on paper, but it isn’t what the Houston Texans should do

If there were ever a point that the Texans’ job would be attractive compared to when they hired Culley last year, it would be this year’s upcoming draft. On top of that, the coaching candidates that would be around at that time are unknown.

With candidates like Eric Bienemy, Vance Joseph, and whoever else’s name one would want to fill in the blank with, this year has a ton of great candidates that the Houston Texans shouldn’t pass up. But, of course, that is a big “if” Caserio decides to pull the plug.

This could be the best chance to improve this team and create a positive aura and vibe from top to bottom. The Texans need to think very hard if they see their next head coach working for a different team right now.
