The Tom Herman era at Texas is over.

On Saturday, the news was passed down that the head coach was served his walking papers.

It appears that the program already has his replacement as 247Sports is reporting that Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is expected to land the job.

The Longhorns will owe Herman about $15 million in buyout money, along with nearly $24 million in buyout money for the coaching staff.
