Texans draw criticism over Lovie Smith departure

Jan 9, 2023

The Houston Texans came under fire Sunday night when the team decided to part ways with head coach Lovie Smith after just one season at the helm.

The dismissal came hours after the Texans defeated the Indianapolis Colts and lost the No. 1 draft pick to the Chicago Bears.

"Nick Caserio and I spoke with Lovie Smith tonight and informed him that we will be moving in a different direction as an organization," Texans chair and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement. "I appreciate Coach Smith and his entire family for their contributions over the last two seasons. We are grateful for his leadership and character, and we wish him the best moving forward.

"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 will work alongside Nick Caserio throughout this process and I'm confident we will find the right leader for our football team."
