Kelvin Sampson Resurfaces: Hired By The University of Houston

Alrighty then. Maybe you can still get a job as a college coach after getting in trouble with the NCAA.

First Bruce Pearl returns from purgatory to take over at Auburn and now, Kelvin Sampson, formerly ex-communicated from Indiana, is returning to his NCAA roots and is taking over the University of Houston.

You'll recall Sampson got in a heap of trouble with the NCAA for making impermissible phone calls to recruits (at a time he wasn't supposed to)...over and over again. That got hims 5-year "Show/Cause" penalty and he's been an assistant coach for 2 different NBA teams since 2008. (He's served his 5-years)

Sampson is taking over the job from James Dickey. Dickey had some success with the Cougars, reaching the NCAA tournament two years ago and going 17-16 this season.
