Transcript (Continued from page 187) But even though he is new to UH, Gladchuk is not new to the world of collegiate athletics - 25 years with Massachusetts, Syracuse, Tulane University and Boston College has given Gladchuck plenty of experience in running an athletics program. UH's newest AD was excited with the possibilities he had in the form of the new athletic facility. "It's magnificent, the finest in the country. It's a statement to succeed academically and in sports all within this complex. Ours is the most all inclusive and impressive center in the nation. During the spring semester, the athletic department unveiled several new plans aimed at relighting the Cougar flame that once burned bright. His first initative was the announcement that all five of the 1998 Houston home football games would be played on campus at Robertson Stadium, allowing another opportunity to bring the excitement back to the students. "It doesn't work in the Astrodome. It was like a square peg in a round hole...Now we can have an excitement with stidents, alumni, athletes, and fans who can come to Robertson and who can partake in all the pagentry that makes football the biggest event, besides graduation, on any college campus." Shortly after the Roberston plan was announced, Gladchuck was at it again with the addition of 10 former Cougars to the Hall of Honor, the first class announced for the hall in 15 years. Included in the class of '98 is Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon from the Phi Slama Jama years, their coach Guy V. Lewis, Carl Lewis of Olympic track and field fame, and Dave Williams, who lead the Cougar golf team to 16 national championships, more than any other program in any other sport in the nation. Just days following the announcement of the additions to the Hall of Honor, Gladchuck and the University of Houston, in conjunction with Rice University, announced the Silver Gloves Series, a new annual five game series between the Cougar and Owl baseball teams. The winner will retain bragging rights for the year, as well as a new silver glove trophy donated by Sterling Bank. The future of this series is exciting, especially considering the prestige of both programs on the national level. Regarding what long term changes he wanted to see, Gladchuk broke his plan down into three parts. "One is to work diligently towards making sure all of our student athletes are treated fairly; second, (that) we work to the point that we lead the conference in on time graduations and academics; third, is to generate revenue to offset the university's offerings. I want to reduce the subsidy in this area." Although Gladchuck's stay has been short term, he has already made changes that will have positive long term effects. He is determined to lead the Cougar athletic program roaring into the next century, and back to the prosperity it enjoyed through the '70s and 8Us. Athletic Director, Chet Gladchuck.
