Dana Dimel 2000-02 8-26-0 story toy TOM CARPENTER Athletics Director Dave Maggard didn't wait long to put his stamp on UH's highest-profile sport. Maggard dismissed head football coach Dana Dimel the day after the Cougars lost to South Florida, 32-14. The team rebounded to win the season finale against Louisville, but it was too little, too late. "We simply have not had the results that we need to have at the University of Houston," Maggard said at the time. "We need to have greater expectations." Maggard said he based his decision on Dimel's 8-26 record, which included an 0-11 season in the midst of a school record 15-game losing streak. Dimel hit the road with two years left on a contract that pays him about $600,000 a year. Record setting running back Joffery Reynolds said the move surprised him and his teammates. "But college football is a business," Reynolds said. "And it's a business about winning." And in his effort to bring winning football back to Houston, Maggard hired a winner, former Cougar Art Briles. Briles played on the Cougars' 1976 Cotton Bowl team that whipped Maryland 30-21. "I bled the blood," Briles said. "I understand what it takes here. I have love for the school, and I'll cherish every moment that I'm going to be Top left: Former football head coach Dana Dimel was dismissed after a three-year stint and an 8-26 record.

Briles earned the Cougar job. His Stephenville High School teams won four consecutive state titles before Briles moved up the coaching ranks to Texas Tech. "He resonates everything that is good as far as the game is concerned in the state of Texas," former UH coach Bill Yeoman said.
