And it’s not Eric Bieniemy. Instead, the team has hired Dave Culley as their new head coach.
This will be the first head coaching opportunity for Culley. All seven 2021 NFL head coaching hires are first-time head coaches in the league, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.
ESPN is reporting Culley will be the oldest head coach at the time of his debut. Culley is 65 and will be 66 on September 17th.
The Texans were the last team to make their decision. Houston had the longest search, and they did not hire one of the top coaches in the hiring cycle.
They are hoping that Culley will change the culture of the team. And they’re hoping that he can convince Deshaun Watson, their star quarterback, to return to the team.
“The thing I would emphasize about Coach Culley, more than anything, is what an amazing teacher and communicator he is,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said in 2019. “He’s probably the best — I would say he’s the best straight-up teacher, communicator, that I’ve seen coaching football one-on-one, not just because he coaches it so well, but because he’s so relentless and he coaches the important things.
“You can be relentless, but if you’re coaching things that don’t matter, then that’s just a lot of hour air. He’s coaching the things that matter, and you see the guys getting better every day within his position group.”
He has been coaching in the NFL since 1994.
He has been a coach since 1978. He served two seasons as an offensive coordinator in college.
Before being hired by the Texans, he was the Baltimore Ravens assistant head coach, wide receivers coach, and passing game coordinator. He spent the past two seasons with the Ravens.
