Amidst the fury of College Football Playoff and bowl announcements, a bit of coaching news leaked out on Sunday afternoon: Tony Levine will not return for a fourth season as Houston’s head coach. The news was first reported by and followed up by Travis Haney of Levine is set to meet with athletics director Mack Rhoades on Monday, and a formal announcement is expected after that. Tabbed as Kevin Sumlin‘s replacement after he bolted up Highway 6 to College Station, Levine led Houston to a win over Penn State in the TicketCity Bowl (now known as the Heart of Dallas Bowl) on New Year’s Day of 2012, but then fell to 5-7 in his debut season. Houston rebounded to 8-5 in 2013, and expectations were high that the Cougars would contend for the American Athletic Conference title in 2014.
