    New Houston OC fired after one game

    Granted they lost the Texas State but I am still a little shocked

    One game in, Houston's offensive coordinator is out after opening day flop - CBSSports.com

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    There has to be more to the story on that. I imagine that the Head Coach and him were butting heads alot prior to the loss to Texas State. I'm sure this was an underlying problem before the game even begun. But WOW, talk about a short leash.

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    I'm guessing the coordinators system was not working very well in practices and whatnot. The game probably sealed the deal.

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    we could be seeing something similar at iowa with GDGD considering JVB and his passing offense went for only +104 yards against NIU on saturday (129 yards passing, -25 in sacks on 45 drop backs). pretty sad, but good to see at that toilet program.

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    I'm sure it wasn't just based on the one game...like most said, I'm guessing the head coach and OC were butting heads all off season on how to do things

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    Some people just can't give credit to the other team for preparing and playing a good game. Firing a coordinator just gets you another coordinator. It doesn't bring a Heisman finalist back onto your team, it won't make you the best offense in the country. Houston once found a way to lose a game with 40 first downs. Maybe Cougar High is just a glorified High School team who couldn't match the motivational genius of Dennis Franchione. Texas State already had a better conference lined up and a new rivalry with UTSA and the other third-tier schools in Texas. Welcome to the new Conference-WAC-Big-West-Whatever-it-is.

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    Some of those small programs in Texas like Texas State and UTSA are sleeping giants. Give it five years and it won't be a surprise when they're beating schools like Houston

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    IIRC, Texas State just made the jump to D1 FBS this year. Big win for that program. Houston on the other hand, just firmly cemented the Big 12's decision to look past them.

    Re: New Houston OC fired after one game

    Even with off the field problems (if even true) that's stupid. 1 game is just not enough to identify a trend of a problem. If the offseason stuff was SO in the way that'd you be on that short of a leash: GET A NEW COORDINATOR IN THE OFFSEASON! I was actually really proud of Texas State. I kinda want them to do well this year because I chose them in my online dynasty (my friend chose UTSA) since they were both the worst programs other than UMASS to just join FBS football.
