The Houston Texans have fired head coach Lovie Smith after just one season in charge, the team announced on Sunday. The decision came down just hours after the team squandered away the No. 1 overall draft pick by defeating the Colts in Week 18.
The Texans now have fired back-to-back coaches after just one year, having ousted David Culley last January.
During this Monday’s edition of Speak on FS1, Joy Taylor went nuclear on the Texans for continuing to give up on coaches after one year.
“The Texans were giving people problems all season long. They weren’t good enough, but that’s not Lovie Smith’s fault,” Taylor said. “So what I’m confused about is, if you’re going to move on from Lovie Smith, who has a ton of experience in the NFL, including experience at the head coaching position, how is the GM still here?”
“What are we doing with that? Because in the time that Nick Caserio’s been there, he’s hired two coaches and will be looking for his third this offseason.”
Taylor then referred to the Texans as a “dumpster fire of an organization.”
The Texans now begin their search for their fourth head coach in four seasons. Former coach and GM Bill O’Brien was fired after starting 0-4 to begin the 2020 season after completing six seasons with the team. He is largely blamed for the direction the team has gone with his bad decisions.
Culley and Smith were the only Black coaches in the franchise’s history. It does not appear any other would want to throw their name in the hat if they know they only have one year to turn things around for a team that has multiple holes.
It is going to be a long offseason for the Texans and even longer 2023 season as they are not expected to be very competitive no matter who they choose in the draft.
