Sampson signs a long-term agreement with Houston

Houston coach Kelvin Sampson signed a contract extension to remain with the Cougars during the 2024-25 season, the school announced Thursday.

Sampson had been the main candidate for work in Arkansas once the Razorbacks fired Mike Anderson last month.

"I'm excited to be at the University of Houston," said Sampson. "We build this program to a point where we can compete for the championships now, and I'm glad our administration is on board."

Sampson quoted Chancellor Renu Khator, board of regents chairman Tilman Fertitta and athletic director Chris Pezman saying that "they have given us the opportunity to compete for the championships – that's all a coach wants."
