Houston is jockeying for position to be included in the Big 12 if they decide to expand and add a conference championship game, meanwhile Tom Herman was looking to find a stepping stone into a bigger gig. Together they are forming a beautiful partnership.
I wrote about Herman's strategy at Houston for SB Nation, read about it here.
What really stands out is that he has a philosophy and strategy for every phase of the game, which makes him a great head man for a program, but he also has the ability to oversee the implementation on offense and in recruiting, which means he can provide strong oversight and involvement in those phases.
I don't think this guy is going to stay in Houston for long.
