According to multiple reports, Baltimore Ravens assistant David Culley has become the next head coach for the Houston Texans.

This is big news for both franchises. For the Texans, they may have found the one guy capable of convincing franchise QB Deshaun Watson to stay. As of now, there’s multiple reports indicating Watson wants to be traded from Houston. Notably, David Culley has a rapport with Watson and could be the head coach to make Watson happier about his standing in Houston.

For the Ravens, this means compensatory picks. According to’s Ryan Mink, the Ravens are slated to receive two third-round compensatory selections, one in each of the next two NFL drafts.

This is significant for the Ravens as they traded a few draft picks away to land Yannick Ngakoue from the Minnesota Vikings, including a third-round pick.

The Ravens have lost yet another assistant/coach to the 2021 offseason. Other departures include:

  • Ravens D-line coach Joe Cullen (Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator)
  • Ravens LB coach Mike Macdonald (Michigan Wolverines defensive coordinator)
  • Ravens DB coach Jesse Minter (Vanderbilt defensive coordinator)
