Football coaches on the Texas Longhorns staff will make a ton of money during the 2020 season.

Herman needs to win a ton of games in 2020 to justify that salary. He better ball out with the Longhorns and push for a Big 12 title.

If not, then he’s going to be in serious trouble. He’s going to be looking at the exit sooner than later in Austin.

The fact Herman and his staff are making north of a combined $13 million is nothing short of shocking. We’re talking about a head coach who has won only 25 games through three years with the Longhorns.

Is that horrible? No, but it’s certainly not what fans expect out of one of the most prestigious programs in the sport.

To put it in the simplest terms possible, Herman hasn’t done anything to justify this kind of money being sent to his staff.

We’ll see what happens, but anything less than 10 wins will likely result in calls for Herman’s firing. Will he get the job done? We haven’t seen much in his history to suggest he will.
