Palcic had been with the team since June 2013 and her staff won the 2017 Pete Rozelle Award given annually to the best public relations staff by the Pro Football Writers of America.
She was the first and only woman to be in charge of public relations for an NFL team.
Her dismissal comes in a difficult season for the Texans, who fired coach/general manager Bill O’Brien after an 0-4 start and are 2-6 at the halfway point of the season.
The remainder of the team’s public relations staff remains intact.
