Smith has been fired after one season with the team.

Over the weekend, the owners of the Houston Texans announced that their current coach, Lovie Smith, had been fired after Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

“We are grateful for [Smith’s] leadership and character, and we wish him the best moving forward,” chairman and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement. “While we understand the results have not been what we had hoped for, we are committed to building a program that produces long-term, sustainable success. Our fans and city deserve a team that they can be proud of.”

“I’m constantly evaluating our football operation and believe this is the best decision for us at this time,” general manager Nick Caserio said in a statement. “It is my responsibility to build a comprehensive and competitive program that can sustain success over a long period of time. We aren’t there right now, however, with the support of the McNair family and the resources available to us, I’m confident in the direction of our football program moving forward.”

This is the second time in a row that the Texans have fired their coach after a single season, with their previous coach, David Culley, getting axed back in January of 2022.
