Transcript Gladchuck Reigns In by D. Ryan Monceaux Faces painted red and white, crowds of fans screaming at the top of their lungs, tailgate parties, united masses of pride and enthusiasm. If Athletics Director Chet Gladchuk has his way, this is what every home game would be like at the University of Houston. Gladchuck, after his first year at UH, is attempting to bring the magic back to an athletic department hallowed in tradition and in honor. "The history of this school motivates me. When it comes to all that is on my desk, it is just a job. That is just a part of the territory. I am fascinated by the history of the university, and with the prospects of revitalizing it." "The first challenge is to provide the coaches the support they need to effectively be competitive. The second challenge is to bring your alumni base, friends, and fans to the forefront with a sense of unity and mission," Gladchuk said. Gladchuck gave an early vote of confidence to football coach Kim Helton, who after a C-USA title in 1996, struggled with the 1997 squad. Gladchuck also refused to publicly speculate on men's basketball coach Alvin Brooks' future with the program, but had met with Coach Brooks and told him he would be let go a full nine days before the official word came. Even with the struggles of the two money making sports for the university, Gladchuck was confident that the battle was just beginning. He maintained that the excitement was building, and that the future of the program was bright. "After all that we accomplished in one year, I know that the Cougar fans are getting excited. I can feel it." One of his early priorities is to increase fan support and to build excitement for an athletic program destined to return to the pinnacle of college sports. "We need to bring the enthusiasm together to an even higher level, displaying a great deal of pride and commitment to a revitalized, exciting, and potentially dynamic program," he added. Houston's new AD is taking his new position as a challenge, more than a nine to five job, and more like a long term commitment that seeks to make strides m a short period of time.
