A Message From Marc Laney:
“It is with a heavy but excited heart my last day at Rice will be April 4.  I will be taking a job at University of Houston in their Advancement office for corporate relations.  It’s been great knowing y’all and just because I’m leaving for a new job does not mean I won’t see y’all at games”.
