Just two days after his unit sputtered in a disheartening 30-13 upset loss to Texas State, Houston Cougars offensive coordinator Mike Nesbitt resigned from his position on Monday according to the Houston Chronicle.
Head coach Tony Levine was completely underwhelmed by his team's lack of killer instinct with the ball on Saturday, in a game where the Cougars were held to just 1-for-13 on third downs and completed just 38.6% of their passes. Levin wasted little time calling out Nesbitt's offense directly to reporters after the game however, and even went as far as to say that his team's downfield passing was "probably the worst I've seen since I've been here five years."
Upon delivering the surprising news, Levin also revealed that assistant coach Travis Bush would handle the offensive play-calling role in the near future. "We wish Mike the best in his future endeavors and thank him for his contributions to the Houston program," Levine said. "We are confident in Travis and his play-calling ability moving forward."
