Rice University Owl Club
Dates and locations for each of the Rice Owls' four stops on the 2015 Coaches' Caravan have been finalized and online registration is now open! Sign up today to join us at one of the May events.
Head football coach David Bailiff, head men's basketball coach Mike Rhoades, and athletics directorJoe Karlgaard lead a group of Owls on the road throughout the month of May to connect with fans, celebrate the 2014-15 seasons, and provide a preview for the upcoming fall and winter sports seasons.
Rice football ended the 2014 season on a high note by dominating Fresno State and winning the Hawai'i Bowl to cap off their third straight bowl appearance, while men's basketball experienced a renaissance under first-year head coach Mike Rhoades with dramatic victories, an energetic Tudor Fieldhouse, and a renewed sense of optimism surrounding the program.
This year's caravan tour begins on May 7 in Washington D.C. followed by a two-stop trip on May 19th in San Antonio and Austin. The Coaches' Caravan tour will conclude the following week in Houston on May 27th. Locations for each of the caravans can be found below.
Owl fans can pre-register for the caravans online for $20 per person, or pay $30 at the door. Each tour stop will feature food, drinks and insight from Rice Athletics coaches and staff. We look forward to seeing you with coach Bailiff, coach Rhoades, and Director of Athletics Joe Karlgaard at one or more of the caravan tour stops.
