And yes, Tom Herman's long-term status in Austin is now incredibly uncertain.
Tom Herman is clearly doing a very bad job and is a disappointment, but also he was the perfect candidate for Texas at the time he was hired. I have no idea who'd be better.
Never dream. Eat at Arby's

Iowa State star RB Breece Hall after beating Texas: “It’s five-star culture versus five-star players.”
Tom Herman on post-game radio: “We obviously didn’t play well or coach well enough there at the end to win the game.”
Texas’ loss today was Tom Herman’s...
- 2nd loss to Iowa State
- 4th loss after leading at halftime
- 7th loss by a Field Goal
- 10th loss to a ranked opponent
- 13th loss by 1 score
- 14th loss to conference opponent
Tom Herman may never coach another down for Texas but let us look back at all the losses he has collected so far. #TexasSucks https://t.co/rcePqvsUqw
Mike Norvell, Scott Frost, Tom Herman and Justin Fuente. Maybe these AAC coaches aren't it.
For two straight years, #Texas defense held #IowaState to 23 points only for #Longhorns to lose late w/4th Q lead. Both years, postgame headlines focused a lot on questionable offense play-calling. Matt Campbell managed to once again out-coach Tom Herman. Crazy times.
Tom Herman said his heart is broken for the senior class and everything they've worked for the past four years
The latest loss by Tom Herman has sealed his fate in Austin... Texas fans can rest now.
Another poorly coached game, his short yard package was dreadful. Two plays cost him that loss today.
RIP as a Coach Tom https://t.co/CsOgtdsF2J
What cruel punishment is this that immediately after seeing Tom Herman lose, again. I must now watch the last successful head coach of the Texas football program, Mack Brown. 😩 https://t.co/aGvqQesbUW
Not really sure how Tom Herman survives after this. Had the best Texas QB since Colt McCoy and basically wasted it. He’s already made his ‘coordinator’ changes. He’s unlikely to get ‘pandemic slack’ like other coaches. He feels ‘done’ to me. #HookEm @Heartland_CS
Fire Tom Herman. Been on that bandwagon for a long time, my fellow Longhorns please join me.
Tom Herman, on whether he's the right guy to lead Texas football
2017 Texas fans-“Bob Stoops retired because he was scared of Tom Herman.”
2020 Oklahoma fans-“Texas, Please give a lifetime contract to Tom Herman”
The GOOD, BAD and UGLY from the #Texas #Longhorns' season-changing, 23-20 loss to #IowaState, increasing speculation about Tom Herman's job security.
A good point just made in my mentions- Tom Herman’s longevity is definitely in question. I would be surprised if they bought him out after THIS year due to the fiscal situation COVID impacted on the athletic program. Optics aren’t good to be buying out a contract post-layoffs

Sam Ehlinger couldn’t endorse Tom Herman after Texas lost to Iowa State and the writing may be on the wall for a coaching change coming in Austin.
Tom Herman is 30-18 @ Texas. This isnt nearly good enough at a school with so many recruiting advantages and resources. He could be out after 2020. Expect his former boss to be the top name to take over if that happens.
Maybe just maybe Tom Herman & Jim Harbaugh didn't forget how to coach. Maybe, just maybe there's a reason the coaches before them weren't successful either.
Dear Tom Herman,
Thank you for everything you have done at the University of Texas and we wish you continued success in Austin.
