According to multiple sources, Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong will be out of a job as soon as Saturday. The sources indicate he’s either going to be fired or resign.

On Friday afternoon, the Longhorns lost 31-9. It could have been a lot worse than it looked as the TCU Horned Frogs were running all over Texas.

This would open up the Longhorns job. Texas boosters have been pressuring athletic director Mike Perrine into hiring Houston Cougars head coach Tom Herman.

Herman could interview with Longhorns officials on Saturday.

Texas fell to 5-7 this season. They’ve had three straight losing seasons and he went 16-21 at the school.

Strong guided the Longhorns to a bowl game in 2014, in which they were beat by the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Herman is also one of two coaches in the sweepstakes to become the Louisiana State University Tigers. Initially there were reports that said Herman met with LSU officials on Thursday before their game with the Texas A&M Aggies in Houston.

Interim head coach Ed Orgeron is also in the mix. He went 5-2 — losing to the Florida Gators on a goal line stance and held the Alabama Crimson Tide to 10 points — after taking over for Les Miles, who was fired after a 2-2 start to the season.

Herman also lost what could have been his final game. The Cougars lost 48-44 to the Memphis Tigers.

Houston went 9-3 this season. His team’s lost to the Navy Midshipmen, SMU Mustangs and to the Tigers.

With the Cougars, he’s gone 23-4 in two years.
