Houston’s head coach Kelvin D. Sampson graduated from Pembroke NC High School.  The Robeson County native is in his 5th year at Houston. He was hired as the Cougars coach after being penalized for 5 years after a show cause penalty in 2008 while coaching at Indiana University. His first college head coaching job was at Montana Tech in 1981.  Other stops include Washington State University and University of Oklahoma.  HIs career includes a couple of assistant coaching positions in the NBA.

So how are you doing with your brackets?

A team should be an extension of a coach’s personality.  My teams are arrogant and obnoxious.  Coach Al McGuire
