We now know where Tom Herman will coach next season. However, for the Houston Cougars, it will not be for them.
Herman is expected to be the next Texas Longhorns head coach.
He was the choice of the Texas boosters, who were pressuring the administration into firing Charlie Strong.
Strong was fired less than an hour before this announcement. He was 16-21 in three years at the school.
On Thanksgiving Day, news broke that Herman reportedly met with the Louisiana State University officials in Houston prior to their game with the Texas A&M Aggies. It wasn’t until Friday morning that Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman said those reports were not true.
The leak was reportedly due to his side, who wanted to use it as leverage to get this job.
Herman said he wasn’t talking to anyone on Friday before the Cougars game with the Memphis Tigers. Apparently, the news was a distraction, as they lost 48-44 in his last game.
In the past two seasons, he was 23-4 — with three losses this season. His name started to come up with jobs when he guided the Cougars to an upset over the Florida State Seminoles in a New Year’s Six game.
Then, the Cougars shocked the ranked Oklahoma Sooners to begin this season. They also defeated then #5 Louisville Cardinals 36-10 on Thursday Night Football last week.
He’s expected to get to get full control of the football program — something Strong did not have. However, he did have full control with the Cougars and they were very successful.
The Texas administration are hoping that this will spark things, as they look to get back to their winning ways. Mack Brown is the coach that they’re hoping Herman can be like, as he went 244-122-1 in 16 years.
In 2005, thanks to Vince Young, the Longhorns defeated the USC Trojans in the Rose Bowl to win the BCS National Championship.
