Why Tom Herman could be an all-time great, even if he never leaves Houston
Herman is making history with the Cougars that’s sure to last … if he stays
This is not a normal Group of Five program, because the program isn’t led by a normal Group of Five coach: Herman is a MENSA member who has roots in Ohio, California, and Texas and has won multiple recruits from Florida. His teams are only going to become deeper and deeper — those injuries that derailed 2016 won’t hurt as much in 2017 and beyond.
If he continues at this pace, his Houston program could well compete for National Championships annually, despite playing in a Group of Five conference.
