Report: Tom Herman to interview at South Carolina next week

Houston head coach Tom Herman is one of the biggest names that has been thrown around the college football head coaching circuit the last few weeks. It looks like he has already garnered the attention of one big-time program out east.

According to Sports Talk SC, Herman will reportedly travel to Columbia to interview with South Carolina next week. Since the Gamecocks’ season ends on Saturday, they will likely want to get a jumpstart on the coaching trail over some other programs that play bowl games.

“We are told [athletic director Ray] Tanner tentatively is going to meet with Tom Herman Monday or Tuesday of next week. The absolute date remains fluid because of Herman’s schedule. His team plays Navy Friday and with a win will move on to the AAC Championship game the next Saturday.”

This would certainly be a big pickup for the Gamecocks as Herman has led the Cougars to a 10-1 record and they are one win away from winning the AAC West and going to the championship game.
