Sumlin promotes offensive coaching tandem
Head football coach Kevin Sumlin announced Monday he will promote from within to fill the vacancy of offensive coordinator created when Dana Holgorsen left for Oklahoma State this offseason.
Wide receivers coach Jason Phillips and offensive quality control assistant Kliff Kingsbury will serve as co-offensive coordinators next season.
“Continuity, especially on the offensive side of the ball, was very important in all of these decisions,” Sumlin said in a release.
Taylor nets C-USA honor
Women’s basketball junior forward Courtney Taylor was named Co-Conference USA Player of the Week on Monday after averaging 16 points and 12 rebounds in a pair of wins that lifted the Cougars into a three-way tie for first place.
Taylor’s two double-doubles placed her at the top of the school’s all-time list with 36, one more than former UH standout and WNBA All-Star Sancho Lyttle.
