Texas football coach Tom Herman was one of the hottest names on the coaching market the past two seasons, but he wasn’t always highly sought after.
In fact, during his younger days, Herman was busy getting fired from his job as a sandwich artist at Subway.
The reason? He loved pastrami a little bit too much.
Herman shared the hilarious story of his firing with Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News. According to Herman, he had the job for four to six months before he was caught gobbling down the cold cuts in the store’s walk-in cooler.
“I used to love the pastrami,” Herman said. “They had those big walk-in refrigerators. I was standing in there one day, with the door shut, just throwing pastrami in my mouth.
“It was like something out of a movie. I’ve got this bin of meat, throwing meat in my mouth, the door swings open and it’s the owner. He goes, ‘Get out. Don’t come back.'”
At least Herman enjoyed the pastrami while he could.
And now, Herman is raking in north of $5 million a year with his new contract with the Longhorns. I wonder how often he hits up the local Subway?
