Houston Texans coach David Culley has enough enthusiasm and optimism that he could take on Hell with a squirt gun.

Receiver Brandin Cooks has taken notice. The 27-year-old wideout was asked for his early impressions on the 65-year-old rookie coach.

“You’re talking about a guy that’s got a lot of energy,” Cooks told reporters on a Zoom call on May 27. “He has his one-liners that I laugh at, but he’s got great personality. A guy that’s going to come and bring it every day and be energized and expect a lot out of us. That’s all you can ask for from coach. It’s been fun so far seeing him put his spin on everything in the building.”

General manager Nick Caserio has similarly been impressed with the way Culley has been able to maintain his high energy and motivation on a daily basis.

“I would say his consistency day-to-day is phenomenal,” Caserio told reporters on May 10 at the Texans’ charity golf classic. “His attitude, his messaging to the players, messaging to the coaching staff. Every day you walk in the building, he’s the same guy regardless of what’s going on. That speaks to who he is.”

Culley has the unenviable task of leading the Texans beyond their 4-12 finish from a season ago, all without the benefits of having three-time Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson under center. However, if energy, enthusiasm, and motivation are enough, the Texans are in good hands with Culley, who is making a quick impression on the organization.
