“Coach Herman is building something very special and we couldn’t be more excited about his leadership of our football program,” Vice President and Athletics Director Chris Del Conte said. “There have been many great accomplishments, and the culture he is establishing is one that focuses on maximizing the student-athletes on the field and developing them as young men off the field, in the classroom and in our community. 

“We are lucky to have him and thrilled to be extending his contract. The future of Texas Football is in great hands.”

The 43-year-old Cincinnati, Ohio native has been the Longhorns head coach since the 2017 season. In two seasons at the school, he has a 17-10 record, including two wins in bowl games. 

Following a 7-6 record in 2017, Herman guided the team to a 10-4 record in 2018, including an Allstate Sugar Bowl win. The Longhorns finished ninth in the country following the season. 

“I’m so grateful for President [Gregory L.] Fenves, Chris Del Conte and the UT Board of Regents, and for all the support they provide me, my family and our football program,” Herman said. “I truly love being the head football coach at Texas. I’m enjoying every minute of it, am so fortunate to have a tremendous staff, and the players in our program are just awesome to work with. We’ve done some good things, but have so much more we are preparing to accomplish. I’m excited for the future.”
