Transcript \\dio, ¥m ])aha UH's new head football coach Dana Dimel talks to reporters shortly after being introduced to the University at his press conference Dec. 13. Dana Dimel compiled a 23-12 record in three years as Wyoming's head coach. UW was one of the most improved teams in the nation during his reign. Photo courtesy of the University of Wyoming Despite producing his second winning season, UH head coach Kim Helton is fired and Dana Dimel hired Photo by Pete Medrano Meet Dana Dimel, UH's ninth head football coach. He's a soft-spoken guy off the field, and an intense character on it. He's a family man, a grinder and a worker. But of most importance to the fans of this storied football program, he's a winner — and a proven one at that. In three previous years as the head man at Wyoming, Dimel has yet to experience a losing season. He carries a 23-12 record into Houston. Before Wyoming, he spent 10 seasons learning from one of the best in the coaching business, Kan-sas State head coach Bill Snyder. "When I first got here, my reaction was of great excitement," Dimel said. "I fell in love with Robertson Stadium, the facilities, the weather, the town —everything is here to win." Despite going 7-4 this season, former UH head coach Kim Helton was unable to hold on to the job he filled for seven years. Two winning seasons in seven years was not enough for UH athletic director Chet Gladchuk, who knew a change had to be made. Now it's Dimel's turn. The 37-year-old K-State graduate ranks among the youngest coaches in Division-I football, a trait Dimel uses to his advantage. "People are going to like my youth and energy for the job," Dimel said. "I know what it takes to win: I expect to win and have a positive attitude which takes to your players." At his young age, some believe Dimel posesses striking similarities to Bill Yeoman, the football legend who coached at UH for 25 years and was 34 when he originally accepted the Cougar job. Only time will tell. • by Josh Gajewski KIM HELTON at UH 1993-1999 Year Record Pet. 1993 1-9-1 .136 r 1994 1-10-0 .091 k 1995 2-9-0 .182 1996 7-5-0 .583 1997 3-8-0 .273 1998 3-8-0 .273 1999 7-4-0 .636 Total 24-53-1 .308 DANA DIMEL at WYOMING 1997-1999 Year Record Pet. 1997 8-5-0 .615 1998 8-3-0 .727 1999 7-4-0 .636 Total 23-12-0 .657 208 SPORTS COACHiriG CHAriGE • 209
