University of Houston Hires Kelvin Sampson

A source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Wednesday that Kelvin Sampson has agreed to become the Cougars coach.

Sampson, 58, was fired from Indiana in 2008 after an NCAA investigation into improper and excessive contact with recruits regarding phone calls and text messages.

Sampson had worked in the NBA as an assistant with the Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets over the past six years. ESPN.com reports Sampson’s deal is for five years.
