The easiest way for Tom Herman to quiet out rumors of him possibly being fired and replaced is by continuing to win. While Texas has won three games in a row and have their record at 5-2, the rumors are still coming out anyway.
The latest rumor is linking Urban Meyer to Texas.
On Monday, Herman said he is not focused on any rumors about his job being in jeopardy, but did speak in length about how the talk about Meyer has a way of harming Texas’ recruiting efforts.
Max Olson of The Athletic shared the transcript of the question and answer:
The Texas Longhorns are ranked 22nd in the country right now, with a trip to Kansas on the docket for this weekend.
Winning that game would put them at 6-2. Their chances of making the College Football Playoff are likely over as no two-loss team has ever made the CFP. Overall, Herman is 30-17 as coach of the Longhorns.
