An official announcement is expected soon.

Good to see Coach Wilson get another head coaching opportunity in Division I.  He was unfairly treated by his alma mater after being promised to open their renovated facility (Tudor Fieldhouse) only to be fired after the 2008 season; a season where they had to play their home games at a variety of venues around the city of Houston during the renovation period.
