Whitting Named Head Coach at Houston


Former Cougar Todd Whitting (left) has been named head coach at Houston. He replaces Rayner Noble, who resigned in June after 16 seasons as head coach.


Whitting was an assistant at Houston from 1995 to 2003 before spending seven seasons at TCU.


A coach with a reputation as a strong recruiter, Whitting helped bring three signing classes to TCU that ranked among the nation’s best.


Whitting helped the Horned Frogs post a record of 305-134 in seven seasons with six straight conference titles. TCU earned an NCAA tournament bid each year and reached the College World Series for the first time in 2010.


As hitting and infield coach, Whitting guided the Frogs to school records this season for team batting average, home runs and runs per game. TCU set a program mark in 2008 with a fielding percentage of .976.


While an assistant with the Cougars, Whitting helped Houston record four 40-win seasons and three NCAA Super Regional appearances over a four-year span.


Whitting was a three-year letterman at Houston and earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology in 1995.
