According to Hornsdigest.com, the LSU Tigers could have a deal in place with Houston Cougars head coach Tom Herman as early as Saturday. This is a shocker as Herman has been linked to the Texas Longhorns.
Even the Texas boosters have put “extreme pressure” on Mike Petrine, athletic director, to hire Herman. He’s 22-3 as the Cougars head coach, including a decisive 36-10 win over #5 Louisville Cardinals recently.
Herman hasn’t ruled out going to Texas, where he was previously a graduate assistant. However, he met with LSU officials on Thursday afternoon in Houston.
Like last year, Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher turned down their advances. After Fisher elected to stay in Florida, their search turned to Herman.
“Contrary to media reports, there has been no decision made on who will be the next football coach at LSU,” the school said in a statement. “Coach [Ed] Orgeron has done a great job of leading this team since taking over in late September and we are pulling hard for the Tigers tonight against Texas A&M. As we stated earlier, we are going to take our time and make sure we select the right person to lead our football program.”
Earlier this week, there were reports that the Longhorns would fire head coach Charlie Strong. The first African-American head coach in school history and his team lost to the Kansas Jayhawks last Saturday in overtime for the first-time since 1938.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this all plays out this weekend.
