David Culley Lands Houston Head Coaching Position
David Culley: The Texan’s Man
Raven’s WR coach lands head coaching spot in Houston
The Ravens’ wideout coach made his departure from the Baltimore organization yesterday as it was announced that he made the cut for the Houston Texans’ head coaching position. Coach Culley served as the assistant head coach, wide recievers coach, and pass coordinator of the Ravens last season. This past season stood as his 43rd year as a part of a collegiate or NFL coaching staff. The Texans are the 6th NFL team that Culley has been a part of. (Steelers, Eagles, Chiefs, Bills, Ravens, Texans) Some notable players that have played under this man include Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Desean Jackson, Tyreek Hill, and many more. The next to note that seemed to be in line was rising star Deshaun Watson, however some things have changed……
Watson has since requested a trade from the Houston Texans and Culley had this to say on the matter. “”He is a Houston Texan. And I wanted to be a Houston Texan. And the reason I’m in this position today is because I knew he’s going to be a Houston Texan. The outside stuff that was being said is irrelevant to me.” (ESPN) Now although the trade request leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of the Houston faithful, the Texans have him under contract until 2025 so a trade is not necessarily inevitable.
After a dissappointing 4-12 season in 2020, the Texans look to Culley’s winning ways in his past to come alive. In 27 NFL seasons the Texan’s new man in charge made 17 playoff appearences, 10 division titles, and 6 conference championship appearences. Baltimore wishes Culley the best of luck!
