Dana Holgorsen Introduced as UH Football Coach

Dana Holgorsen was introduced as the 15th head coach in Houston Football history on Thursday afternoon. Holgorsen arrives after eight seasons as the head coach at West Virginia and returns to Houston after serving as the Cougars’ offensive coordinator over the 2008-09 seasons.

"Make no mistake about it, we're here to win," said Holgorsen. "I've had some conversations with some of the players here, including the QB who is pretty good."

An offensive genius, his passing offenses and total offensive output have ranked in the Top 10 nationally all but four years during the 14-year span since he became offensive coordinator at Texas Tech in 2005.

“He is absolutely the right person for the job," said Tilman Fertitta.
