Tom Herman has been fired, the school announced Saturday.

Herman, who completed his fourth season as head coach of the Longhorns, finished his time in Austin with a 32-18 record. While Herman strung together consecutive winning seasons and won four bowl games, he also fell well short of expectations and never won a Big 12 Championship.

Herman’s tenure was highlighted by a 10-4 2018 season punctuated by a 28-21 Sugar Bowl win over Georgia. The Horns finished ranked No. 9 in the nation, the best finish by any Herman team at Texas.

Replacing Herman will now be the school’s focus. Discussion of Herman’s replacement can be found on the Inside Texas Members’ board.
