Transcript |Run *N Shot Helton fires coaches after dismal season Houston head coach Kim Helton made drastic changes in his coaching staff, just three days after Houston finished a 1-9-1 season with a 37-7 loss to Rice. Recruiting coordinator Bruce Davis, receivers coach Ron Shanklin, offensive line coach Ronnie Vinklarek, and defensive backs coach Melvin Robertson were fired from their positions on the coaching staff. Tony Fitzpatrick, defensive tackles coach, and defensive ends coach Ben Hurt were reassigned to administrative roles, mainly to help with recruiting. Helton was tight-lipped as he sat at the press conference to deliver the news. "We've all had some difficult things to do in life," he said. "This rates up there as one of the most difficult (for me). I have great remorse for what has had to happen for us to move on." "These are great men, and they handled it like pros." When Helton was hired after spring drills, a stipulation of his employment was that he use the staff and the system already in place. He was allowed one change, replacing special teams coach Tommy Kaiser, who moved on to Texas Tech, with Frank Gansz. "The fair thing for those coaches was to allow them to continue coaching through the end of the season," said Athletic Director Bill Carr. "Now (Helton) has the prerogative of filling his staff with his choices." He added that he did not yet know how he would realign the coaching staff, but he did say that Fitzpatrick, Hurt and running backs coach Danny Palmer would handle the recruiting, and offensive coordinator Neal Callaway would not be coaching the quarterbacks next season.

"It's the standard by which the state of Texas measures coaching and football teams." Robertson was the most storied of the coaches. He was the Cougars' defensive coordinator between 1967-71 under former coach Bill Yeoman after serving two years coaching the secondary line. He returned to Houston as linebackers coach in 1991 as a part of John Jenkins' staff and was promoted to defensive coordinator the next year. Robertson remained the coordinator under Helton, but he was demoted to secondary coach after Houston's 42- 21 loss to Michigan. Linebackers coach Gene Smith replaced him. Danny Palmer is now the only active coach left from the earlier regimes. "I feel very fortunate to be a part of a new beginning," said Palmer, who coaches the running backs. "Kim created an atmosphere that was relaxed, business-like and you enjoyed being around him."-Adam King kay guys, I can only give one hug at a time. Houston successfully stops another Tulsa drive.
