After one season, the Texans fired David Culley.

According to sources, the Houston Texans fired head coach David Culley on Thursday after one season.

An NFL assistant since 1994, the 66-year-old Culley got his first head coaching 

opportunity with the Texans in 2021, but it lasted just one campaign in which Houston finished 4-13.

Texans general manager Nick Caserio, who was brought in during the 2021 offseason as well

will now look for his second coach in as many seasons 

and the franchise's third head coach over the last three years.

"I met with David Culley and Tim Kelly earlier today to inform them we will be changing direction 

at the head coach and offensive coordinator positions," Caserio said Thursday night. "That's why I made this difficult

 but necessary decision. We had philosophical differences over our program's long-term direction and vision.
