Texas is expected to hire Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian as its new head coach, according to multiple reports.

This is the definition of a shocking Saturday news dump. I just hopped out of the shower, and couldn’t believe it when I saw the alert.

I thought it had to be a joke or something was incorrect. Nope! Tom Herman is done with the Longhorns.

It just looked like Texas had committed to keeping him for at least another season. Now, he’s out the door and a major coaching search will get underway.

The biggest job on the market is officially in Austin. Welcome to the world of college football where things can change on a dime.
