One thing we can thank Tom for, is giving our chance to showcase that we pay pretty good, Houston athletes are interested in staying home, we upgrade facilities when asked and we get national attention when we are good.
The list of quality coaches ready to come to UH is probably 10 times greater than 2 years ago. I hope our A.D. takes note of that when he gives a priority list of what to look for to the hiring firm.
- A history of success at the FBS level.
- A history of great recruiting (preferably in Houston or Texas in general)
- If the money is competitive with top 25 FBS coaches are they willing to put on paper their long term commitment to UH. In other words, putting in the contract no negotiating with other schools until last year of contract or an extra large buyout compensating UH for lack of long term commitment.
