A few months ago, we told you about the fate of Tom Herman, one of the hottest commodities on the football coaching market.
It seemed that the only way to keep the coach was to fire him.
But Herman, who had been at Houston since 2010, got his wish.
And now we can finally share what he was hoping for.
As a result of a recent conference call with ESPN, Herman was asked about his future and what he would like to accomplish moving forward.
Here’s what he had to say:So, what are your thoughts on the job market right now?
How do you feel about the state of the market?
How would you evaluate the candidates, and what is the biggest challenge that you would face moving forward?
I think I’ve learned a lot from these guys over the years, and I think they’ve learned something from me.
I think that’s been one of their biggest strengths is they’ve had the ability to stay focused and to be ready for whatever they’re facing and not just look at the top candidates.
So I’m confident that I can continue to do what I’m doing and continue to win football games.
I have some great coaching friends that I work with, some great mentors, and a great family.
I know what it takes to win, and they’ve proven that time and time again.
They’ve proven it, and that’s why I’m so proud to be the coach at Houston.
