Houston athletics director Mack Rhoades would not say if he has been in contact with the Big 12 in the wake of Texas A&M's plans to leave the league.
Houston began competing in Conference USA in 1996. Last summer,
two Houston-based lawmakers wrote a letter asking Big 12 officials
to consider adding Houston after Colorado and Nebraska announced
they were leaving. Texas A&M said Wednesday it plans to leave by
Rhoades said he's focused on improving Houston's athletics
program, adding that "we're always going to look to get better."
He thinks A&M's exit will prompt more realignment, but he wouldn't
speculate on how it may affect the Cougars.
