#HTownTakeOVER: Herman Accepts Texas Head Coaching Position
For any UH fan or alum that is lamenting the notion that your program has become some sort of Power Five feeder system for head coaches (Art Briles to Baylor, Kevin Sumlin to A&M, now Herman), know this — if your program is churning out head coaches that are being poached by top programs every two to three years, you probably have one of the winningest programs in all of college football. In other words, as much as today hurts, having your coach thieved every two to three years is not a bad thing to aspire to. It’s reality for not just the Group of Five schools, but for about all except maybe 20 or 25 schools that don’t qualify as “destination schools.” And while being in the Big XII might improve Houston’s chances of keeping a Tom Herman-like head coach, the likelihood is that Herman would’ve left for Texas even if the Cougars were admitted into the Big XII, so don’t lose sleep over that. Hopefully, in two or three years, some blue blood wants your next head coach, because that probably means you averaged 10 or 11 wins per season the next few years.
