Tom Herman to join CBS broadcast team

LINK

quote:

Herman’s first game as a color analyst with CBS Sports will reportedly come on Sep. 3, when the North Texas Mean Green out of Conference-USA takes on the SMU Mustangs out of the American Athletic Conference.

Moreover, this is definitely an interesting shift in roles for Herman after he joined the Chicago Bears as an offensive analyst/special projects coach following his departure from Texas a couple of years ago. Herman wound up spending just one season on staff with the Bears before making this shift to the commentator booth.



posting for no reason at all

Hope he doesn’t start kissing players during a broadcast.

He might kiss his broadcast partner instead.

That's an impressive career free fall.

It’s scary how close we came to hiring that psychopath

Can we get a cross network booth broadcast death match with Dan Mullen for 1 game?

Who is to say he would not have been highly successful at LSU?


Texas got rid of Mack Brown after 2013. Since that time, 8 years, they have only had 4 winning seasons. ALL of them under Herman. 8 years, 3 HCs, relatively minimal success.

On the flip side LSU hired a guy, Orgeron, who was absolutely horrible at Ole Miss. For 3 seasons he won at least 9 games each year, culminating in one of the greatest seasons in CFB history...before he stupidly forgot he doesn't know how to coach football, only recruit. One school, 3 HCs hired over the course of 20 years. NONE had championship success before coming to LSU. ALL left as a national champion.

So maybe, just maybe, the issue was more TEXAS, not Herman. And if Herman were to have come to LSU he would still be coaching with a championship ring rather than sitting in a studio breaking down a North Texas game.

The opportunity (LSU) was there for Herman...He chose poorly

That hire that was so close to happening would have changed a bunch of shite and LSU never gets tGOAT 2019 season. Dodged a bullet.

He might still be coaching at LSU. It's proven to be a lot easier to win here than Texas in the last 20 years. Texas broke him, but I think he would still be a really good coach at the right place.

Saw that tweet and a lot of the replies were "almost every coach does this, stop reaching".


What made me think of Herman and the pecks on the cheek, googled and saw this.

I'm surprised he hasn't gotten an opportunity as a college OC.

Guessing he has, but thinks he's a HC and has money to wait.

It seems like yesterday there were billboards begging for Herman to take the UT job.
