Texas Firing Tom Herman After Latest Embarrassing Loss?

Texas Firing Tom Herman After Latest Embarrassing Loss?

Tom Herman’s coaching future is very much in doubt after the No. 9 ranked Longhorns fell to an unranked TCU squad on Saturday afternoon.

Four years into Herman’s stint with the program, this has become an all too familiar sight. He cannot just Adam Gase his way through life for much longer, right?

After the game, Herman owned up to his failures – sort of.

“That’s on me to get them ready and find a way to make sure that we don’t beat ourselves,” he said.

While that ownership is no doubt better than the alternative, it doesn’t do much good if nothing ever comes of it.

Since 2017, no FBS coach has recorded more losses at the hands of unranked opponents while AP ranked at the time.

That fun fact speaks to how overrated Texas is on an annual basis with Herman at the helm, and just how much the program consistently underperforms.

Needless to say, fans were not happy with what they saw on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Herman, he and the Longhorns won’t have much time to relax and regain their equilibrium. Next week they are taking on an Oklahoma team with something to prove.

How much longer will Herman be able to fail and not suffer the consequences?

By the look of things – not for much longer.
