Under Applewhite, the Cougars finished 8-5 this season after getting embarrassed 70-14 by the Army Black Knights in the Armed Forces Bowl.
This will be a return to the Bayou City for Holgorsen, who was the University of Houston's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach during the 2008 and 2009 seasons under Kevin Sumlin.
Holgorsen's contract with UH is reportedly for five years and $20 million.
A news conference to introduce Holgorsen is being scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday at TDECU Stadium Club. UH fans are invited to welcome the new coach.
