In six seasons as a head coach, Herman never had a losing record. He was 22-4 in two years at Houston and 32-18 in his four seasons with the Longhorns. In 2020, Texas finished with a 7-3 record.
Herman was a hot commodity on the coaching circuit in 2014, following Ohio State’s national title run. He spent three seasons on Urban Meyer’s staff in Columbus before taking the job in Houston.
