The Baltimore Ravens are still going strong in the playoffs and that has other teams quite interested in their coaching staff. With a number of vacancies around the league right now, Baltimore is surely going to be a favorite destination for team owners and general managers as they try to find their next head coach.

That’s precisely what the Houston Texans are doing, as it’s expected they’ll interview Ravens assistant head coach and wide receivers coach David Culley for their vacant head coaching job, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Culley has quite the resume backing him up here. He’s been the assistant head coach both at Baltimore and with the Kansas City Chiefs over the last decade, including the last two with the Ravens. And with both John Harbaugh and Andy Reid being among the most respected coaches in the game right now, that carries quite a bit of weight.

But it’s also a little shocking Culley is getting attention before guys like defensive coordinator Don Martindale and offensive coordinator Greg Roman this season. Both Martindale and Roman were among the favorites for coaching gigs at this time last year and while both have had continued success with the Ravens this season, there hasn’t been much chatter about their chances.

The Texans have a new general manager in former New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio after firing former general manager and coach Bill O’Brien midseason. However, with limited draft capital and quarterback Deshaun Watson allegedly angry over the lack of input in the general manager search, Houston might not be the greatest landing spot right now.

We’ll see if the Ravens lose any of their staff this season or if several people just get interviews before returning to Baltimore. However, with the playoffs still ongoing, hopefully everyone’s attention is focused on beating the Buffalo Bills this weekend to advance to the AFC Championship Game.
