HOUSTON - Skeeter's Mesquite Grill filled to standing room only during the fourth stop of the University of Houston Coaches' Road Tour on Monday night.

Cougar fans were treated to a lengthy Q&A session with Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades, a surprise appearance from head women's basketball coach Todd Buchanan and motivating words from Cougar football coaching legend Bill Yeoman. Swimming coach Mark Taylor, head golf coach Jonathan Dismuke and football's offensive coordinator Jason Phillips and assistant head coach Tony Levine each spoke to the overflow of Cougar fans.

After being introduced by Tom Franklin, the radio voice of the Cougars, Rhoades asked the fans what they would like to discuss during this stop. The crowd embraced the opportunity, as their A.D. took several questions, including those regarding the new stadium design.

"We've got to go out and raise the money to make it happen," Rhoades said. "We'll work hard over the next 12 months to secure that lead gift."

"So, if there's anyone in this room with an extra $30 million lying around," Rhoades joked. "Please see me afterwards."

Taylor then took the microphone and discussed his team's upcoming season as well as the splash his swimmers are making nationally and internationally this summer. Dismuke followed him by addressing the crowd about his incoming freshmen and the Cougars' resilient team captain Clark Mitzner.

Phillips, who belted out his message without the use of a microphone, touched on the importance of fan support along with updates regarding the offense before taking questions.

As Phillips finished his remarks, coach Yeoman jumped up to rally the fans in attendance, letting them know how important their presence is in Robertson Stadium.

"It is your job to fill those seats and demand that they play exceptionally hard and exceptionally well," Yeoman said.

Levine, who not only serves as the assistant head coach, but also the special teams coordinator and inside wide receivers/tight ends coach, closed out the evening by sharing the fun he had with last year's team while showing his excitement for the talent level of this season's recruiting class.

NEXT STOP
Cougar fans are invited to Buffalo Wild Wings in Pearland at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 10, for the next stop on the Coaches' Road Tour.
