Three Replacements For David Culley as Texans Head Coach

The Houston Texans fired David Culley today in what should be a huge, blinking message to the rest of the league in capital letters that they are not to be taken seriously. Culley was given the reins to a completely barren roster and managed to overachieve, winning four games despite starting a person named Davis Mills at quarterback. It is disgraceful that they so blatantly treated Culley as a placeholder and scapegoat and karmic punishment should be imminent.

But it is the NFL and there are only 32 head coaching jobs in the entire league. Someone will want to go work for the Texans, even if they are a despicable franchise, because the prestige of being a head coach of a professional football team outweighs any and all concerns.

Football-wise, the organization is in a terrible place. They still haven’t managed to get rid of Deshaun Watson, who is currently taking up a roster spot and getting paid $35 million to not do anything worse than he already has while his off-field issues are dealt with. Houston will have their own (high) draft picks to play with in the upcoming years but it’s a serious rebuild job. You can count on one hand how many players on the 2021 roster are worth keeping around for the long-term. This will be a half-decade process unless gold is unexpectedly struck.

With all that in mind, here are a few options for Culley’s replacement.
