Transcript Moving on up UH coaches receive promotions x here could be no event more spectacular or more newsworthy than Andre Ware's Heisman Trophy award. Or, so we thought! Before the Heisman news reached its peak, controversy broke out in the Houston sports community. Houston Oiler Head Coach Jerry Glanville either quit or was fired (or both). The Oiler's owner, Bud Adams, quickly offered the position to Jack Pardee. Adams said, "Jack Pardee was my first and only choice." General Manager Mike Holovak concurred. Pardee indeed was a logical choice for the position, for his credentials have been excellent on every level of competition. He has been successful at every level from high school to the pros. Pardee was even Coach of the Year a few times and took a team to the Super Bowl. Pardee claimed that the Oiler position was the only job that could lure him from UH. However, he never thought the positon would become availible because he knew that Bud Adams and Jerry Glanville had a strong relationship. "I was surprised," said Pardee." The good thing about this is I don't really have to move; all I have to do is change offices. It doesn't require me to pick up and move my family again." Pardee, upon learning he was the prime candidate, said he expressed to Adams that this could affect the UH recruiting situation if it became a long drawn out process. So, he urged Adams to make a decision as quickly as possible. It took Adams less than three days to announce that Pardee was his man. UH Athletic Director Rudy Davalos moved even faster. He quickly announced that Offensive Coordinator John Jenkins would become the new head coach. No one was really surprised at this decision. "There was no doubt in my mind that John Jenkins was the right man for the job," said Davalos. The rest of Houston unanimously agreed. Jenkins was probably one of the most sought after assistant coaches in the country. He became widely known for his version of the Run and Shoot, and was a finalist for the head coach position at UNLV. Many agree that sooner or later some organization would have lured Jenkins away from UH, especially after Pardee left. Davalos and other officials felt that Jenkins was too valuable to the program to let that happen. Virtually all of the players agreed. -R.
