It didn’t take long. Only seven games into the Tom Herman era, and Texas football fans are already tired of losing.
Following a 13-10 loss in overtime to the No. 10 Oklahoma State Cowboys, the father of Texas running back Armanti Foreman took to Twitter to voice is criticism of coach Tom Herman.
The elder Foreman has been vocal about Texas football in the past. His other son D’Onta played for the Longhorns last season before landing with the Texans in the NFL this year.
Not only was he critical of coach Tom Herman, perhaps unfairly placing the burden of the teams struggles on him, but he went so far as to scythe team would have been better with their former coach, the much-maligned Charlie Strong calling the shots.
For as big and prestigious a football brand as the Texas Longhorns are, this is the head coaching job there isn’t as highly coveted as you’d expect it to be. Texas is a cesspool of unreasonable expectations and fans who expected to win a National Championship with a team that won five games the previous season.
Tom Herman has coached seven games for the Texas Longhorns, and there are fans, albeit a very small number of them, who are already fed up with how he is performing.
His seat is far from hot, but the sooner he starts winning games, the sooner everyone in burnt orange will be smiling again.
