Steve Sarkisian is officially the head football coach of the Texas Longhorns.

Following the Saturday firing of Tom Herman, Texas announced Sarkisian as the new head coach late Saturday afternoon. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, that didn’t take long at all to happen. There was chatter about Sarkisian as soon as Herman was fired, and it’s now a done deal.

Clearly, the people calling the shots down in Texas aren’t interested in wasting any time.

I have to give major props to Sarkisian. A lot of people would have just quit if they’d gone through what he’s been through.

He was thrown out at USC as he battled substance issues, and it looked like his career was over. Now, after some time with Nick Saban, he’s the next head football coach at the University of Texas.

It really doesn’t get much better than that at all!

Sarkisian’s journey has been a hell of a comeback, and it should be fun to see what he does down in Austin.
