According to Fox 26's Mark Berman and John McClain from the Houston Chronicle, David Culley has been fired as head coach of the Texans.

This news should not come as a surprise with the Texans needing several days to evaluate David Culley and the coaching staff. Plus, GM Nick Caserio has pushed back several interviews this week, which makes this decision look like a forgone conclusion.

The common thought on the Texans recently is that Nick Caserio has had a plan in place from the beginning, and Culley was likely to be a one and done head coach unless he proved he deserved the job. With the team going 4-13 this year, and Culley repeatedly making head-scratching comments in press conferences and postgame interviews, the decision was made easy for Houston.

We have to imagine the next Texans head coach will have a tie to the New England Patriots and Nick Caserio. Our money is on either Josh McDaniels, Brian Flores, or Jerod Mayo being the Texans next head coach.


Mark Berman is reporting that OC Tim Kelly has also been let go.

Ian Rapoport is hearing that Culley didn't want to make any changes to his staff, and that was an issue for the Texans.
