As the Longhorns head coach, he went 32-18 at the school. In addition, he won every Bowl game during his tenure, including two straight Alamo Bowl game wins.
At this time, Texas has not officially announced his firing.
With his departure, the Longhorns owe Herman $15 million for the remainder of his contract. He had three-years left on his contract.
In addition, during a pandemic, Texas also owes his assistant coaches buyout money, as well.
The school is pursuing Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian as Herman’s replacement. He has previous head coaching experience with the Washington Huskies and the USC Trojans.
Before this announcement, the Longhorns were courting former college football head coach Urban Meyer in December. After speaking with school officials, he elected to remain out of coaching.
One thing that may have hurt Herman during his four seasons at the school was that he lost seven games to unranked opponents when the Longhorns were ranked in the Associated Press poll. That was tied for the most by a school during the span since the 2017 season.
During Herman’s tenure as a head coach, he has only two seasons, where he has won more than 10 wins at a school. The first time that happened was in 2015 during his first season as the Houston Cougars head coach when he guided the team to a 13-1 record.
Then, in 2018, in his second season as the Longhorns head coach, Herman guided his team to a 10-4 record. They won the Allstate Sugar Bowl over the Georgia Bulldogs and finished ninth at the end of that season.
