Mack Rhoades chose the former Texas Tech head coach to take over at Houston. The real news, in my mind, is what happened with Billy Gillispie? Did he simply take too long to make up his mind?
Scratch Sam Houston State's Bob Marlin off the list of potential coaches for the vacant head coaching job at UTEP.
Also, it looks like Mach Rhoades' Houston Cougars are zeroing in on Billy Gillispie or Tim Floyd (Houston Chronicle).
Tom Penders is out at the University of Houston despite leading the Cougars to the C-USA Tournament Championship and the NCAA Tournament.
