Major Applewhite is officially out as the head football coach at Houston after just two seasons.
Houston announced on Sunday that Applewhite has been relieved of his duties.
Applewhite went 15-11 in two seasons with Houston, and an embarrassing 70-14 loss to Army in the Armed Forces Bowl ended up being his last game with the program. The Cougars went 7-5 last year and started out 7-1 this year before an injury to their star quarterback derailed their season. They finished 8-5.
