Houston Head Coaching Update: At Least Four Candidates Interview For Postion

News has been quiet on the Houston Cougars coaching search to find their replacement for the departed Kevin Sumlin. The latest news is that Houston has interviewed at least four candidates for the job. Sam Kahn Jr. of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that two of the candidates are current members of the coaching staff:

UH has interviewed two internal candidates - interim head coach and special teams coordinator Tony Levine and co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach Jason Phillips. Oklahoma State associate head coach and special teams coordinator Joe DeForest and Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease also received interviews.

Another name that has been mentioned for the job is current Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. All of these names mentioned for the job are coaches who are taking part in their teams bowl preparations which could be the reason for the lack of news developments for the Houston job.
