The Houston Texans fired head coach Lovie Smith hours after the team finished 3-13-1 in his first season as head coach, according to ESPN.

“We are grateful for [Smith’s] leadership and character, and we wish him the best moving forward,” Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement. “While we understand the results have not been what we had hoped for, we are committed to building a program that produces long-term, sustainable success. Our fans and city deserve a team that they can be proud of.”

“I’m constantly evaluating our football operation and believe this is the best decision for us at this time,” Texans general manager Nick Caserio said in a statement. “It is my responsibility to build a comprehensive and competitive program that can sustain success over a long period of time. We aren’t there right now, however, with the support of the McNair family and the resources available to us, I’m confident in the direction of our football program moving forward.”

McNair said he will work with Caserio to “find the right leader for our football team”, who will be their fourth head coach in four seasons.
