Cal McNair Will Not Attend David Culley’s Introductory Press Conference

When the Texans hired Nick Caserio to be their general manager, they had a glorious press conference, with Cal McNair front and center with Caserio. That day, McNair tried to be a human being. There were talks about the ice bucket challenges—a meme from seven years ago—golf games, fake tears, Daddy Loves You Lots, and assertions about how Jack Easterby has a lot to offer the Houston Texans without defining what he actually offers the Texans. Cal looked dull, lifeless, robotic, and imbecilic. He was a dullard throughout the presser, and that’s putting it nicely. After that failed attempt to feign humanity, Cal has decided to be a COWARD and will not attend today’s press conference introducing David Culley has Houston’s new head coach.

Instead, McNair had the following to say through a statement.

A year ago, in a conference call with Bill O’Brien and Jack Easterby, Cal McNair claimed the Texans had bold moves in the pipeline Texans fans should be awfully excited about. Those bold moves turned out to be firing Bill O’Brien after an 0-4 start, naming Jack Easterby the interim general manager, Romeo Crennel the interim head coach, hiring Nick Caserio to be general manager, ignoring Deshaun Watson and thus leading to Watson requesting a trade, and hiring David Culley. Culley is a 65 year old first-time head coach who has zero NFL coordinator experience, poor recent results as a wide receiver coach and passing game coordinator, and who was never seriously considered for a head coaching job until this go-round. Culley will reportedly have a staff consisting of Lovie Smith at defensive coordinator and Tim Kelly at offensive coordinator.

Now, after making his most recent BOLD move, the empty vessel that is Cal McNair is sitting in a basement, likely with Jack Easteby at his side, nowhere to be found.


The Texans will introduce David Culley as the head coach with Nick Caserio at 12 p.m. today. Anyone can watch it LIVE through the team’s website.
