Source: Houston Texans fire coach David Culley after just one season

HOUSTON -- The Texans have fired head coach David Culley, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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 & chairman Cal McNair and general Nick Caserio, was the lone Black coach hired last offseason and was one of three Black coaches in the NFL.

Before being hired in Houston, Culley spent two seasons as the Baltimore Ravens' assistant head coach, passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach.
