Word on the boulevard is UH is planning to accept pre-Christmas deposits to purchase season tickets for UH football games. The Norm Chow era has started.
* * * * *
Oh, wait. The Chow era begins in another 10 days.
While Chow has signed a five-year contract (worth $550,000 per year, plus incentives), the deal does not trigger until New Year’s Day.
So, for those wondering how Chow can work for two teams, the answer is: He’s not. He will coach Utah’s offense through the Dec. 31 Sun Bowl while “volunteering” at UH until his official hire date.
