The Houston Cougars have announced that they are parting ways with head coach Major Applewhite.
Applewhite first arrived in Houston as the offensive coordinator in 2015 as a part of Tom Herman's staff. He was promoted to head coach after Herman left for the Texas job following the 2016 season.
Houston made, but failed to win a bowl game in each of Applewhite's three seasons in charge. They got blown out by Army 70-14 in the Armed Forces Bowl, tying the most points allowed in bowl history.
He finishes his tenure with a 15-11 record. Only 40 years old, you can bet he'll find his way onto some team's offensive staff for the 2019 season and beyond.
Houston Announces Separation with Major Applewhite.
National search for Houstons 15th head coach has commenced.
