Shared by Brett McMurphy of Stadium, Texas Longhorn athletic director Chris Del Conte has confirmed that Tom Herman will return as the football program’s head coach. For weeks, it has been speculated that Herman would be relieved of his duties and be replaced by Urban Meyer. However, after reports surfaced that Meyer was not interested in Texas, the program had no choice but to retain Herman.
Herman has been head coach at Texas since 2017, and has reached the Big 12 Championship Game once.
