Dana Holgorsen’s Protégé Emerging as Favorite to Take Over Houston

Dana Holgorsen was fired as Houston’s head coach after five seasons.

Houston, TX – The Houston Cougars are back on the market for a new head coach. After the firing of Dana Holgorsen, who went 31-28 in five seasons with the Cougars, many have been speculating who might be the new leader in Space City.

While nothing is official, the coaching search could be narrowing down, according to reports. Kliff Kingsbury, who previously coached for Texas Tech and the Arizona Cardinals, has emerged as the favorite to land the job.

College Football Report on X broke the news earlier this afternoon.

Kingsbury has accumulated a 28-37 record in college, and a 28-38-1 record in the NFL. He began his coaching career at the University of Houston as an offensive quality control coach under then offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen.
