When Texas rushed to get in line to hire Graham Harrell it let the upstart USC offensive coordinator know just how much he was wanted and needed in Austin. He reciprocated interest by meeting with Tom Herman on Wednesday, December 4th, in Houston. The meeting went very well and a deal seemed imminent but then things went quiet -- a little too quiet from the fan's perspective.
One thing we haven't heard mentioned from anybody with knowledge of Graham Harrell over the last few weeks is money. Maybe because plenty of money is guaranteed to be there it's not a driving force in his decision making. More on that, the defensive coordinator interview, and team in Friday's Humidor.
