Tom Herman Makes First Public Statement Since Being Fired at Texas

NCAA Football: Iowa State at Texas

Tom Herman has broken his silence. Herman remained quiet after getting fired by Texas on Saturday but earlier he released a statement thanking the university and his former players.

Herman’s statement was short and sweet, saying, “I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to have been the head coach at the University of Texas. It has been a great honor, and as an alumnus, Texas will always hold a special place in my heart. I also want to thank the players that I’ve been blessed to coach. You have represented the University with dignity and have given your all in an effort to make your program better. And to the coaches and staff who have poured their heart and soul into this program, my appreciation has no bounds. Your efforts have been the backbone of our successes. Finally, my family and I wish nothing but success and happiness to Longhorn nation in the future.”


The Longhorns fell short of expectations this season going 7-3 and missing the Big 12 Championship Game. But they rallied late with a huge win over Kansas State and then crushed Colorado in the Alamo Bowl.

Herman finishes his tenure at Texas with a 32-18 record and 22-13 in Big 12 play over four seasons. His best year came in 2018 when Texas reached the Big 12 Championship Game, which they lost to Oklahoma, and then won the Sugar Bowl against Georgia.

Who knows what is in store next for Tom Herman and currently has a 54-22 record as a head coach as well as a 5-0 bowl record. Maybe another power five school picks him up or maybe he ends up at a group of five school. No matter where he is at, I am sure the headlines will follow.
