Report: Tom Herman to Texas is ‘all but official’

Tom Herman Houston

Houston suffered a stunning loss on Saturday that sent the team tumbling out of the top 25, but that apparently has had no effect on a major program being interested in its head coach.

In fact, a report on Monday claimed Tom Herman becoming the next head coach at Texas is essentially a done deal.

Houston had an outside chance at making the College Football Playoff if the team ran the table, but a loss to Navy earlier this month all but eliminated those hopes. Then on Saturday, the Cougars were dominated by SMU, 38-16.

In his first season as the head coach at Houston last year, Herman led the Cougars to a 13-1 record, which was a significant improvement over the team’s 8-5 record the season before. The former Ohio State offensive coordinator began the 2016 campaign with an impressive win over Oklahoma, and he has been linked to more than one high-profile head coaching job.

While Herman has said in the past that he remains committed to Houston, you can understand why he’d leave for a program like Texas. Charlie Strong has been a major disappointment, and the Longhorns are said to be ready to move on from him. From the sound of it, they have already found their next guy.
