HOUSTON (AP) _ Bob Pruett, Marshall’s football coach the last seven years, will take over Houston’s program, a Houston television station reported Thursday.
KRIV-TV reported that Pruett will be hired Saturday. Pruett would replace Kim Helton, who was fired two weeks ago.
Pruett coached No. 11 Marshall to a 12-0 record this year, and a berth in the Motor City Bowl against Brigham Young on Dec. 27.
