Update: The Texans have released a statement. It isn’t unlike most statements after a coach is fired:

The Houston Texans have let head coach Lovie Smith go after one season. Under Smith the Texans went 3-13-1, but they played well to end the season, including a Week 18 win over the Indianapolis Colts. That win took the Texans from the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft to the No. 2 pick.
Smith was brought in to help bring some stability to an organization that has gone through plenty of turmoil and for his effort, he’s been canned.
