The Houston Texans are a mess of an organization that was never going to go anywhere in 2021. Somehow those lack of expectations still weren’t enough to give head coach David Culley any more than a single season on the job.
Jay Glazer is reporting that he’s expecting Culley to be fired after one year in Houston on the sidelines, which means the Texans will dip back into the head coaching pool of candidates in hopes of unearthing their future leader.
Not only did Culley step into a roster void of any real impact talent on both sides of the ball after previous trades sent DeAndre Hopkins and more away from the organization, but even quarterback Deshaun Watson sat out the season after a slew of sexual harassment allegations surfaced against the Texans quarterback. He’s been inactive for every single game this season.
Jay Glazer says the Texans are going to fire David Culley.
Culley and company still managed to win four games this season with a chance at a fifth win on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans—a game that actually matters quite a bit to Chiefs Kingdom. The Chiefs are hoping Culley can put one more win on the board as he leaves and send the Titans reeling out of the top spot in the AFC.
Culley was formerly an assistant next to Andy Reid as the team’s wide receivers coach and assistant head coach from 2013-2016. From there, he left to become the Bills quarterbacks coach and then was the assistant head coach and passing game coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens thereafter.
This single season in Houston was Culley’s only head coaching experience at any level.
