Despite the loss of several key players and a lot of coaches, first-year head coach Tony Levine has high expectations for the Houston Cougars football team.
The Kevin Sumlin era is in the books and now starts the Tony Levine era. It started off pretty good as he started a new tradition and invited all of the Cougars football team families for a meal, prior to the annual "Fan Appreciation Day" held in the Alumni Center. It worked too, for close to 600 people showed up for this first-time event.
There will be a lot of first for the Cougars. There’s a new starting quarterback in David Piland, another crop of unproven receivers in Daniel Spencer, Ronnie Williams, Dewayne Peace, Isiash Sweeney, and a new offensive coaching staff, led by new coordinator Mike Nesbitt.
