The Texans have fired coach David Culley after one season.

After four days of speculation, Culley became a one-and-done head coach, the first in team history.

According to sources familiar with the situation, after the Texans spent four days evaluating the personnel side of the organization, general manager Nick Caserio and senior executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby recommended Culley be fired. Chairman and CEO Cal McNair signed off on it.

Culley, 4-13 this season, including a 2-2 finish, was the fourth head coach in franchise history after Dom Capers, Gary Kubiak and Bill O’Brien.

Caserio will conduct a search for the new coach. Don’t be surprised if it’s someone he and Easterby worked with at New England.
