Houston Vs. Louisiana Tech: Kevin Sumlin Reaches Out To Tony Levine

The Houston Cougars' opening 30-13 upset loss to Texas State was ugly and embarrassing, but head coach Tony Levine told the Houston Chronicle he's gotten several calls of support from friends, including former Houston coach Kevin Sumlin.

Sumlin, who left the Cougars to coach the Texas A&M Aggies this season, called Levine on Monday to offer his support.

"He was one of many that’s reached out to me the last couple of days and given me encouragement," Levine said. "It means a lot to me."

Sumlin on the call:

"That was a tough situation for him Saturday and tough decisions were made," Sumlin said. "It’s one of those things as a head coach, until you’re in that chair, it’s hard to understand some of the decisions that are made. But you’re responsible for everybody in the program."
