Transcript The 1986-87 sports season was a year marked by change and transition. Head football coach Bill Yeoman retired after 25 years at UH with a 160-108-8 career record. Cougar spirit was lifted when it appeared that the 1986 homecoming game would be played in Robertson Stadium. But "Domecoming" was the ruling by the SWC due to protests brought about by Arkansas Athletic Director Frank Broyles. A successful U.S. Olympic Festival heightened Houston's chances for hosting an Olympics in the future, as well as giving the local economy a much needed boost. Tom Ford's resignation from a local Pizza Hut and the threat of an NCAA investigation were all part of the foreboding circumstances surrounding the change in Athletic Directors and much of the personnel within the department. Incumbant head football coach Jack Pardee began training the Coogs to execute his "run & shoot" offense. Head basketball coach Pat Foster began his coaching career at UH with an 18-12 winning season. The men's tennis program was eliminated after 40 years, just another of the many programs to fall victim to this year's budget cuts. Head golf coach Dave Williams, the winningest coach in NCAA history, retired after having traveled with the team for the past 32 years to spend time with his wife and travel the U.S. We wish him well. 90
