The Texans have fired head coach David Culley following a 4-13 initial season as head coach.

Hours later, Culley said in a telephone interview that he accepts the situation and is ready to move forward with his head held high after leaving Houston, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 in Houston reports.

"I'm disappointed, but it's part of the business," Culley said. "I understand and I move on."

The Texans spent four days conducting their due diligence on Culley and his entire coaching staff as well as keeping track of a growing number of head coaching vacancies.

Ultimately, it was recommended by general manager Nick Caserio to chairman and CEO Cal McNair that the team move on from Culley and now he has been fired along with offensive coordinator Tim Kelly, per sources.

Culley was fired due to performance and game management issues along with alignment, staffing and philosophy disconnects, according to sources.

Culley said he has three years remaining guaranteed on his contract, contrary to sources who stated he was due one year remaining on his deal and was due just $4 million remaining on his deal. Culley is actually due $17 million remaining of his $22 million contract in the final three years of the deal, according to sources.
