Longhorns are sharing messages of support and excitement to welcome Tom Herman back to the Forty Acres as head coach of the Texas Football team.
Take a look back at what fans, student-athletes and the Longhorn community are saying, from the announcement of Herman’s hiring on Saturday through his introductory press conference Sunday:
A new chapter of Texas Football is here.
Herman, who comes to UT Austin after most recently working as the head coach of the University of Houston’s football team, is known for being a proven competitor, terrific recruiter and committed mentor of student-athletes.

And Longhorns are ready…
Herman’s first season as head coach of Texas will mark his 14th spent in the state of Texas out of 20 years coaching on the collegiate level. That includes his time as a graduate assistant at UT Austin, where he earned a master’s degree in education.
