    Houston hires new DC to replace Skladany

    Houston hired former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Brian Stewart to rework a defense that was among the worst in college football last season.
    Stewart spent last season as defensive special assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles following his dismissal in Dallas after spending the previous two years as defensive coordinator there.
    He replaces John Skladany, who was let go after Houston's 47-20 loss to Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl. The Cougars went 10-4 last season behind the No. 1 offense in the country. But they ranked 111th in the nation in total defense.

    I thought John did a decent job when he was up here...

    Re: Houston hires new DC to replace Skladany

    The problem with Skladany is that he was never great against the pass. We were a stop the run and try to make them beat us with the pass type Defense, which in today's world doesn't work.

    Re: Houston hires new DC to replace Skladany

    did this guy coach/play with jeffcoat in dallas?

    on a somewhat related note, sounds like jeffcoat jr is leaning hard towards UT. though i think houston is still right in the mix and a new DC might have some effects on that...whether positive or negative.
