REPORT: Former ISU OC Tom Herman next head coach at Texas

ESPN is reporting that Houston’s Tom Herman will be the man who replaces Charlie Strong at Texas. The Longhorns, after losing to TCU on Friday, went 5-7 this year. Strong’s three year record at Texas was 16-21.

Herman on the other hand led Houston to a 22-4 mark during his two years with the program. Prior to that, he was Urban Meyer’s offensive coordinator at Ohio State where the Buckeyes won a national championship.

His stop before that of course was in Ames, for three seasons as Paul Rhoads’ offensive coordinator. Herman coached Iowa State’s offense in two bowl games – the Insight Bowl win over Minnesota and a loss to Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl.

Herman is a free spirit, a fun guy and I could not be more happy to have him back in the Big 12.

This is going to be fun.
