Reports of Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman being hired as UH’s new head football coach, according to “a person with knowledge of the situation,” have been circulating, though no agreement has yet been reached between the two parties.

Herman has a past with Texas teams, as he served as a graduate assistant on the athletics staff at the University of Texas from 1999 to 2000. Herman also rivaled the Cougars as he was the offensive coordinator for the Rice Owls previous to his tenure from 2007 to 2008.

Herman was later hired by Ohio State in December 2011 and had a huge role in developing the Buckeyes to the team that won the Big Ten this past season. Ohio State is set to play Alabama in the national semifinals as they rank fourth nationally in scoring with 45.2 points per game.

Herman was named the nation’s top assistant coach last Tuesday, receiving the Broyles Award due to his ability to mold and reconstruct the Buckeyes this season. Herman had the job of replacing Big Ten MVP quarterback Braxton Miller, who was lost for the year due to a shoulder injury, as well as a 1,000-yard rusher in running back Ezekiel Elliot and four offensive linemen.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this article said that Herman gained experience under Mack Rhoades while Rhoades was at the University of Texas. Rhoades was never at UT; he worked at UT- El Paso from 1998 until 2005.
