Without much surprise, Houston Texans have officially fired David Culley
The Houston Texans have officially decided to part ways with David Culley.
In what took a few days, David Culley could not survive the evaluation placed by the Houston Texans organization and Nick Caserio. This comes shortly after a handful of his own players were sticking up for him and vouching for him to stay.
It is hard to see Culley only get one shot at the head coaching job, but this was a terrible situation that no one would have done well in. Maybe Culley was the bridge coach and the guy to last a year, as now the speculation of who will replace Culley will now be off the charts. Additionally, Tim Kelly has been fired as well.
Will it be Brian Flores, the one coach that Deshaun Watson wanted to play under in Miami? Or is Houston headed for another New England staffer with Josh McDaniels to be the guy?
The Houston Texans say their coach is someone else after firing David Culley.
This has been what was expected from the start. The organization did not claim his job was safe or that they would be looking for candidates, but Culley’s decisions along the way in the 2021 season are what most likely did him in.
The Zach Cunningham and Justin Reid situations were huge red flags, and as much respect he had from the players, fans were calling for his job after the loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Being shut out in Buffalo was a nightmare, and Tyrod Taylor’s turnover-fest against the Miami Dolphins will also put you on the hot seat in an instant.
Maybe the Houston Texans are going for an Arizona Cardinals-like rebuild here. A new head coach coming in most certainly means that they will be drafting the quarterback of their choice to start the new regime.
Houston, it just got interesting.
