The David Culley experiment with the Houston Texans is over after one season. As a result of the 4-13 record in 2021, Houston let Culley go.

In the same vein, the Texans cut offensive coordinator Tim Kelly. Culley became the latest coach to join this list here.

At first, Culley was brought in to replace Bill O’Brien. The separation is also a bit messy in its details. As this piece notes, the Texans will owe the 66-year-old $17 million over the next three seasons. He made $22 million in his first and only season as a head coach.

Houston is going through some serious struggles as of late. After an opening week win, the Texans lost eight straight contests.

However, Houston did turn their play around toward the end of the 2021-22 campaign. Despite winning three games, the Texans cut Culley.

What stings more for Culley is that he was under contract for four more years after this campaign.

Meanwhile, for general manager Mike Caserio, it’s back to the drawing board to find the next successful head coach.

Consequently, the frustration is starting to mount for fans in the Space City. The playoff drought is continuing in Houston.

The Texans will look to put a stop to their drought with a third new coach in 2022. Before Culley came to Houston, he was an assistant coach for Baltimore in the 2019-20 season.

In conclusion, Houston is back to square one, and Culley will look to take his talents elsewhere.
