NFL coaching rumors are heating up as the offseason approaches. Houston Texans head coach David Culley has been the subject of some early rumblings, as his future is murky following a less-than-impressive year.

NFL insider Jay Glazer provided some insight on Culley's job security ahead of Week 18.

Glazer said he wouldn't be shocked if Houston moved on from Culley after just one year. The Texans even have been linked to one unsurprising name as a possible replacement for Culley.

Houston's brass likes current New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, according to Glazer. Given the Texans' numerous links to the Pats, like GM Nick Caserio, it's far from surprising to hear them potentially dipping into that well once again.

It's hard to see this being fans' No. 1 pick. McDaniels struggled in his only stint as an NFL head coach, going just 11-17 with the Denver Broncos before and not even lasting two full seasons.

He does have a reputation for developing quarterbacks, and rookie Mac Jones has looked impressive in his first year, so he could theoretically be what Houston needs to help maximize the potential of Davis Mills.

Still, it could be a frustrating choice for the Texans to lean into their Pats resemblance even more instead of developing their own identity.
