Texas football coach Tom Herman has released a message urging unity during the coronavirus pandemic.

As fears about the virus continue to grow, more and more figures in the world of sports are stepping up with messages. You can now add Herman to the list. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“We’re dealing with great uncertainty and an opponent we all must defeat,” Herman says in the video shared by the team’s official Twitter account.

I obviously appreciate Herman’s concerns and efforts, but I’m not sure I want a guy who can’t win big games leading the way on this one.

If Tom Herman can’t be better than 25-15 in three years with the Longhorns, then how the hell is he supposed to beat this global crisis?

This is substantially worse than when Jim Harbaugh appeared in a PSA. Michigan might not be able to beat Ohio State, but at least they can win.

Leave defeating coronavirus to the pros like Mike Leach and Coach O. When Herman consistently wins at least 10 games every season, then I’ll be interested in letting him lead the way.

Until then, I’m sticking with Leach and Orgeron.
