The Texas Longhorns and the Tom Herman conundrum

With Charlie Strong's future in Austin increasingly the subject of speculation, the window to land college football's brightest rising star may be limited.

As rumors continue to linger about Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong's interest in the Miami Hurricanes vacancy and a groundswell of belief begins to take hold in certain corners that Strong and Texas are better off parting ways, the success of first-year head coach Tom Herman with the Houston Cougars looms large over the proceedings.

Former Longhorns quarterback Chris Simms accurately captured that sentiment about Strong and the 'Canes last week:

"I think it would be a great fit. I really do. Listen, I love Texas but the way they treated Charlie Strong, I wouldn't be mad if he just stuck up his middle finger to all the Texas people and said to hell with you, I'm going to the U and go dominate South Florida and become a national power.

The rebuild in Austin isn't progressing as fast as Strong or fans would like, with crushing loss after crushing loss slowly undermining support for the Texas head coach among the Longhorns fan base, which is now increasingly casting its longing eyes east.

Just as importantly, Texas fans aren't the only ones lusting after Herman -- with numerous job openings like USC, South Carolina, Missouri, and Maryland, in addition to Miami, rest assured that Herman's agent is a busy man these days.

Having led Houston to a 10-0 record and helped construct a recruiting class that features consensus five-star prospect Ed Oliver to rank No. 32 nationally and No. 1 in the AAC, according to the 247Sports Composite team rankings, Herman's brief tenure with the Cougars has been nothing less than a resounding success.

Cal Lutheran University Has Become A Cradle for the Development of Coaches
From the very inception of Cal Lutheran’s football program, our legendary Coach Bob Shoup established a strong foundation built upon the values and characteristics that he had absorbed from his parents, his mentors and his faith that have endured through his players and their attraction to and application of this kind of coaching. Above all it is based upon integrity; respecting each players interests, life and abilities and expecting this same kind of integrity from each player about themselves. Secondly, it is based upon gratitude; being thankful for the life you have been given by God, and thirdly, to apply yourself diligently towards your interests and your dreams through hard work, discipline, courage, passion, intelligence and a respect for others.
