After a long series of twists and turns, Tom Herman signed a contract as head coach with the University of Texas. This announcement was met with different opinions, from a warm welcome to accusations that Herman misled the public. Indeed, the chain of events was quite peculiar.

There were innumerable stories as to where Herman was going to continue his career. Theories that Herman was going to LSU circulated as well as talk that he was not leaving Houston at all.
