Transcript Out with the Old... by D. Ryan Nonceaux Everyone knew it was coming.coming The only question was when, and on Sunday, March 1, Chet Gladchuk let the world know thai AJvin Brooks had been fired as the men's basketball coach at the University of Houston. The only real question was why Brooks was let go before the Conference USA tournament, when waiting a week longer would have seemed to make more sense. Gladchuk thought that the timing on the firing was right "We |ust wanted to put it to bed." said Gladchuk.

Brooks also never led the Coogs to the NCAA tournament, the measuring sock for success in college basketball.

His players were upbeat and focused, and Brooks fielded all questions put to him by the media He was as happy as a guy without a job could be and he did not have any regrets regarding his style or his peifonnance Regarding bis firing. Brooks commented. "These thing, happen. You have to also look at it from their (the yj,e scene ^ Coach Brooks meets with the media on school's) point of view. The have to go on and recruit " the day after his firing was made public. He expressed sorrow that he was "not given the chance to finish what he started" Brooks Fired 181
