16 for ’16: Best College Football Coach-Quarterback Combos
6. Houston – Tom Herman and Greg Ward
Herman is one of the hottest young head coaches in college football. In Ward, he has the ideal multi-dimensional threat to help carry out his offensive plans.
In their first season as partners, Herman and Ward helped lead the Cougars to 13 wins, an American title and a New Year’s Six bowl upset of Florida State. And the best may still be ahead in 2016, even after Ward accounted for 38 touchdowns by vexing defenses with his quick feet and his improving passing skills.
16 For '16: College Football Coaches Who Could Be President
14. Tom Herman, Houston
Looking for a fresh face on the political scene? Herman could be that guy. He’s only 40 years old, with the energy and the innovations to meet the demands of a rapidly changing society. Think Julian Castro or Marco Rubio before the latter was taken down a rung during the current primary season. Everything Herman has touched lately has turned to gold, a quality that the nation’s governing bodies sorely need these days.
