Texans complete interview with Brian Flores one day after dismissing head coach David Culley

Less than one day after dismissing David Culley, the Houston Texans have officially begun their search for a new leader.

The team announced Friday it had interviewed former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores -- the Texans' first head coaching interview of this hiring cycle.

Flores, who was fired by Miami on Monday after three seasons, has now completed two interviews this week. The Chicago Bears announced they had interviewed Flores earlier Friday.

Texans general manager Nick Caserio addressed Culley's departure and the team's future after one tumultuous season during a press conference Friday morning, calling it "one of the hardest decisions I've made in my life" before discussing next steps.

"I would say, I don't think anybody should assume anything," Caserio said. "I'll be very deliberate with this process. The most important thing is finding the best fit for this organization."

Prior to their respective stints in Miami and Houston, Flores and Caserio worked together during their lengthy tenures with the New England Patriots. Flores served in multiple positions within Bill Belichick's coaching staff from 2008-18, while Caserio spent the last 13 years (2008-20) of his two-decade long relationship with the club as director of player personnel.
