The Texans have fired head coach David Culley, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Offensive coordinator Tim Kelly also was fired, a source told Schefter. On Sunday, after the Texans completed a 4-13 season, Culley said he expected to return for a second season. However, the Texans' ownership and front office took the past few days to evaluate the coach and decided to fire him on Thursday. The firing comes one year after the Texans hired Culley, a longtime assistant, who became the oldest first-time NFL head coach at age 65. Culley, hired in January 2021 by team CEO and chairman Cal McNair and general manager Nick Caserio, was the lone Black coach hired last offseason and was one of three Black coaches in the NFL. Culley's firing leaves the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin as the NFL's only current Black head coach.
