Inconsistent play by the Conference USA team may have done him in. From AP-
Tom Penders has resigned as coach at Houston, ending a six-year tenure that culminated in the Cougars’ first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1992.
The Cougars qualified after winning the Conference USA tournament, but lost to Maryland 89-77 in the first round Friday night.
The 64-year-old Penders became just the eighth coach to take four different schools to the NCAA tournament. He had also led George Washington, Rhode Island and Texas there.
Penders has been successful whereever he has coached. Considering his age, I don’t know if Penders will want to try a fifth school.
The rumor mill is already at work in concern to who will be Penders’ replacement. Right now the name that is being floated around is Sam Houston State’s Bob Marlin.
