Houston Texans Fire David Culley After Just One Season

After just one year, David Culley got canned by the Houston Texans. Culley was hired after the Texans moved on from Bill O'Brien just last year. Culley went 4-13 as the coach of the Texans in his lone season. The Texans waited three extra days to make the decision to move on from Culley.

I feel for Culley, he didn't stand much of a chance. Between the DeShaun Watson situation looming over his team for the entirety of the season, and mostly ineffective quarterback play from Tyrod Taylor I'm not sure what else you could ask from Culley as a rookie head coach.

Actually, when Davis Mills started games he looked okay all things considered and this is one of the most barren rosters in the NFL right now. Regardless, the Texans will be looking for a new head coach after doing the same thing last offseason.

For the next coach, they will decide if Davis Mills deserves another kick at the can, if they go quarterback in the draft, or if they bring in a veteran to at minimum compete for the starting job. Also, expect DeShaun Watson to be moved so it will be enticing for the next coach with the added capital from that deal pending as well.

Culley is well respected around the league as he's worked with Andy Reid, Sean McDermott, and John Harbaugh during his coaching career. Expect him to stick on a staff somewhere soon.
