College head coach is a new experience for UCO's Holland

By Bob Hersom

Tracy Holland hasn't been where he's going Saturday, but he's been close.

The new Central Oklahoma football coach has been a head coach for 11 seasons but never at the collegiate level. That will change Saturday night, in UCO's season and home opener against Pittsburg State (Kan.), ranked No. 17 in NCAA Division II.

Holland has been a head coach in the Football League of Europe (Frankfurt for five years) and the past six years at Oklahoma high schools (three years at Heritage Hall and three years at Oklahoma Christian School).

He hasn't coached in college since his first four years on the job, 1989-92, as a Northern Colorado assistant under Joe Glenn, who now is a major college head coach, at Wyoming.

Holland has inherited a UCO program that's starting a three-year NCAA probation, which will cost the team 10 scholarships overall.
