The University of Houston is losing Hunter Yurachek after almost three years. Bret Bielema, who coached the Razorbacks' football team for five seasons, was sacked November 24.

Prior to his time with the Cougars, Yurachek was the athletics director at Coastal Carolina for four years. Yurachek signed a contract extension with Houston past year and has helped the university grow in large amounts since his arrival.

Hernandez expanded his lead in the final count by the electoral tribunal from about 46,000 votes to about 52,000. Police spokesman Jair Meza said almost 800 people were detained during the first two nights of the curfew.

After multiple reports said that Houston AD Hunter Yurachek will replace Jeff Long in Fayetteville, the University made it official Monday evening. "We welcome Hunter, Jennifer and their children to Arkansas".

Yuracheck has been with Houston since the spring of 2015 and he oversaw the search of a new football coach that landed Major Applewhite as the Cougars head coach.

Originating near Sri Lanka over the Bay of Bengal, on Cyclone Ockhi moved over the Arabian Sea via Comorin, triggering heavy rains and high speed wind.

"The opportunity to serve the Razorback program is both humbling and exciting", Yurachek said in the statement. He played basketball at Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C., and grew up in Charlotte, N.C. "The University of Houston remains committed to our winning tradition, and we will immediately begin the search for a leader who shares our desire to compete for championships at the highest level".

Yurachek steps into a unique situation at Arkansas, which had been conducting simultaneous searches for an athletics director and head football coach. The Razorbacks are 32-43 in their last six seasons since the firing of scandal-ridden former coach Bobby Petrino, the school's worst six-year stretch since it went 22-38 from 1948-52.
