Yet another head coaching candidate has popped up on the Houston Texans’ radar.
We have already heard the names of supposed frontrunner Jim Caldwell, as well as Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier mentioned. Now, the Texans appear to have lined up an interview with Baltimore Ravens assistant head coach/receivers coach David Culley, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
“(Ravens coach) John Harbaugh has been outspoken about how ready Culley is,” Rapoport wrote. “An impressive coach.”
Soon after he heard the report, Harbaugh told reporters Culley would be a “tremendous hire” as a head coach. Culley has never been the main man on the sideline before, but he does have plenty of NFL experience.
Prior to joining the Ravens, Culley worked alongside current Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid for 18 years as a receivers coach — both with the Eagles (1999-2012) and the Chiefs (2013-2016).
Whoever takes the Houston job will have to put out some fires, starting with Deshaun Watson. The talented quarterback has apparently not been pleased with the organization’s recent management hiring decisions.
