Transcript ' t Cougar football .Mf New head coach Kim Helton gets out in the heat for two-a-days in August 1993. His Cougars took the field in September. Photo by Adrees Latif (center) 1 ony Fitzpatrick, defensive tackles coach, councils a new Cougar. Fitzpatrick is a holdover from the John Jenkins' era, but other coaches came and went as Coach Helton took over. Photo by Adrees Latif (below) (Quarterback Jimmy Klingler seems to have a spot in Coach Helton's offense, but you may not see so much of this. Helton intends to get rid of the Run- and-Shoot offense as soon as he can, so that means fewer passes and fewer broken football records for Cougar QB's. Photo by Thomas Nguyen (lower center) He 'II Take It Sight Unseen \Mew Football Coach Kim Helton strives for class Sometimes it is best to go with your heart. Needless to say, for new University of Houston head football coach Kim Helton, Houston was where the heart was. "Houston is a great city that is surrounded by a great suburb of the flavor of things I like to do," Helton said. Helton was an offensive coach in the National Football League for 11 years before accepting the UH coaching position. His coaching experience included stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Houston Oilers, the Los Angeles Raiders and the Miami Dolphins. After his involvement with other teams in other cities, Helton said he was thrilled to call Houston home again. "I'm fortunate that Bill Carr has given me the opportunity to rebuild a football program that I think can be very successful." Helton was eager to get involved again with the "total college atmosphere." "I like college because if a player that I coached were to ever become successful, I could say and stand proud that I helped make that player become what he is." One player that Helton could be boasting about in the future could be quarterback Jimmy Klingler. Helton had thus far been unable to evaluate his talents in great detail. "I have not watched Klingler on film," Helton said. "In my mind he does possess some of the tools that one needs to win. About the only thing I do know is that he is the starting quarterback until he proves otherwise." Helton also added that the Cougars would eventually get away from strictly employing the Run-and-Shoot offense, but would still be a pass-oriented offense nonetheless. "Wewillbe a four wide- out team in initial and on third down," Helton said. "We will be a three-wide, one-tight end and one-back team. And we will be a two-back, two-wide team." The offense was just one of the many changes that Helton hoped would take place for the Cougars next season. "The physical changes that need to take place are my abilities to have discipline on thefootballfield,"hesaid. "The attitude and image of this program are whit I will fix immediately" Helton said that study hall would be mandatory for all t hose players whose grade point average is under 2.0 Any player who misses the required study hall was expected to show up at 4:30 a.m. for an early- morning jog with Helton himself. "Anyone who misses that has put themselves in jeopardy of not being on this football team," Helton said. Helton said he believed that this particular strict style would help his players to be responsible and thus reflect on 174 Sports their overall performance on the football field. "We are going to be proud," Helton said. "I want my guys to be honest, hard- nosed and classy football players." The word "classy" was what many people familiar with college football though the Cougars lacked during the regime of John Jenkins. Jenkins' tactics on the football field, in which many claimed he intentionally "ran up the score" on opponents, often led opposing coaches to get the last laugh. "I don't know what kind of person John Jenkins was, "Helton said. "All I knew about him was what I saw on the field professionally. Other than that I have no idea about what his coaching philosophy was." Nevertheless, Helton insisted that it was important the the football program move on and develop the winning attitude they one possessed. "For us to be successful, we have to win the Southwest Conference and then the national championship," Helton said. "That is the bottom line. We are not going to be satisfied with 'good enough' or 'we almost beat Texas.'" When asked if the Cougars would win the national championship, Helton responded positively. "I believe that we will," he said. And that came straight from the heart. -Jason Paul Ramirez KimHelton%%+175
