Apparently, Texas Has These 2 Backup Coaching Choices If Urban Meyer Says 'No'
© Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports
All this "who will replace Tom Herman" talk and the dude is STILL the Longhorns head coach. We already know that Texas officials have met with Urban Meyer this week about taking over the program, once Herman is canned. If that doesn't pan out, it's being reported they have two coaches they're looking at going to next. Per CBS Sports...
quote:

If Meyer isn’t interested, look for the pecking order to start with Penn State’s James Franklin with Oregon’s Mario Cristobal next in line.

Not helping the situation: Last month, Herman lost Quinn Ewers, the top-ranked quarterback in the Class of 2022. Ewers dropped Texas and committed to Ohio State.
Any guesses who Texas' new head coach will be come kick off next year?

Any chance they come after Orgeron? He won a national title. Could come cheap.

Cristobal is an underachiever at best. Heck, Oregon State and Cal just beat him.

Franklin would build a great program. He is a good coach and won even at Vandy. He would be there longer than Urban that’s for sure.

Franklin is 2-5 in a 3 team conference. Cristobal coaches in the weak-12 and would not be able to comprehend Tejas expectations.

Two great choices to keep Texas mediocre at best.

You mean Aaron Franklin from Franklin's BBQ. James Franklin at Penn State started 0-5, can't be interested in him.

He would be a better choice at least he could light a fire under them.
