Yurachek signed a five-year deal with Houston that ran through 2021 in January and was hired as the school's vice president of athletics in April 2015.
Neither party was available to comment Monday.
Yurachek replaces Jeff Long, who parted ways with the school on Nov. 15.
This isn't Yurachek's first role as an AD, previously serving in the same capacity at Coastal Carolina.
