Report: Texans hire Ravens assistant David Culley as new head coach

Follow The Money discusses the news that Deshaun Watson is very unhappy in Houston, and will likely request a trade out, wondering where he'll play his next game.

The Houston Texans are hiring Baltimore Ravens assistant head coach and passing coordinator David Culley as their new head coach, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

This will be Culley's first head coaching job after spending the last 27 seasons coaching as an assistant in the NFL. The 65-year-old takes over after the Texans fired Bill O'Brien after an 0-4 start last season and named Romeo Crennel as the interim coach.

Culley will become the third Black head coach currently in the NFL joining Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores. He will also be the fifth minority head coach which includes Ron Rivera in Washington and the New York Jets coach Robert Saleh.

Earlier this off-season, the Texans hired Nick Caserio as their new general manager who was given the task of hiring the team's new coach. The team still has to deal with the future of franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson who has reportedly requested a trade out of Houston.
