Former UTSA offensive coordinator Travis Bush has accepted the position of running backs coach at the University of Houston, replacing former RB coach Claude Mathis.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining the Cougar family,” Bush said. “It’s been great to see the progress the football program has made over the past few years and it’s evident that the administration and the university have made a commitment to excellence with regards to athletics and academics. I had the opportunity to play for Coach Levine, and he has always been someone I’ve admired. He has put together an amazing staff, and I’m honored to be working along side them.”
Dan McCarney of the San Antonio Express-News reported today that 9,101 season tickets have been sold for the Roadrunners’ inaugural season.
But how does 9,101 compare with other D1 programs?
The Baylor Bears announced today that their 15,000th season ticket had been sold, which is apparently their highest number in recent history. Last year Baylor averaged just over 40,000 in attendance at each home game.
