Kelly Comarda also. Better raise big NIL bucks.

UH at the bottom in finances.
UH’s operating budget was $81.5 million in 2022-23, which ranked last among teams in the four major conferences, according to the data tracking website Sportico. At the same time, UH remains one of the most subsidized athletic departments in the nation, with 71% of 2023 revenue coming from direct institutional support and student fees.

While UH has a huge student and alum base in the Houston area, they are notoriously unsupportive of UH--weak attendance and probably even weaker financial support. So, their financial plight is hardly new, but Pezman may have not been able to generate any incremental improvement. Alternatively, there are a variety of reasons he has been unceremoniously dumped--was he fishing from the company pond? or did he accidentally look cross-eyed at Tillman Fertitta? Whatever the reason, Fritz and others have been served notice that lightening can strike at any time at UH.

an interesting or non interesting fact... Tillman Feritta, The Chairman of the Board of Regents for the University of Houston Education System, does not posses a "college degree"...he occasionally attended class at Texas Tech and UH but never graduated, Gawd help all of those tenured Tulane perfessers and Bored members if I ever got in charge I will have Jerry Lee Lewis theme song playin at every meetin' and FUN raisin' event.."Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On"

Is Willie putting Kortne Gosha's name in the search committee's ears?
