Report: Houston's Penders to resign

Tom Penders will resign as Houston's coach days after the team was eliminated in the first round of the NCAA tournament, according to the Houston Chronicle:

The Penders era will come to an official end on Monday, when he announces his resignation after six seasons at UH.

A prominent UH insider said Penders’ resignation was the byproduct of “a positive” meeting with athletic director Mack Rhoades on Sunday afternoon. Rhoades would not comment on the matter, saying only, “There will be an announcement regarding the future of the men’s basketball program in the near future.”

Penders, who has a 121-77 record (.611) in six seasons at UH, was not available for comment.
