Smith: One year later, Texans' hiring of David Culley looks stranger than ever

What a long, strange year it's been. The Texans are still searching for another new head coach. The New York Giants have publicly stated that they have no interest in trading for Deshaun Watson. The Texans' former franchise quarterback is still on the Texans' roster, despite not taking a single snap for a 4-13 team last season. And as Jan. 27, 2022 unfolds — with Patrick Mahomes in another AFC Championship Game, Ben Roethlisberger announcing his retirement, and Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers questioning their NFL futures — I spent Thursday morning reflecting on Jan. 27, 2021.

NFL has 1 Black head coach after Texans fire David Culley, league faces social media firestorm

The Houston Texans came under fire Thursday when the team fired head coach David Culley after one season, leaving only one Black head coach in the NFL. The Texans went 4-13 in Culley’s lone year but the head coach had to deal with a lot for a first-year head coach. The team had all the legal drama surrounding Deshaun Watson coupled with his trade request and the circus he brought to training camp and the will they or won’t they in regard to a trade in the middle of the season.
