Houston Texans fired coach David Culley and offensive coordinator Tim Kelly on Thursday.
According to reports, New England Patriots linebackers coach Jarod Mayo is the No. 1 candidate to be the next head coach.
David Culley had previously said on Sunday that he thought he would continue coaching next season. But after days of deliberating on the review, Houston Texans management made the opposite decision.
Before joining the Houston Texans, David Culley spent two years as assistant head coach, passing coordinator and wide receiver coach at the Baltimore Ravens. The Houston Texans’ roster hasn’t been strong this season: Quarterback Deshaun Watson has been sidelined for off-court trouble, and defensive end J.J. Watt was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in the offseason.
Veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor alternated with third-round pick Davis Mills, but neither played well.
