Texas President Gregory L. Fenves said coach Tom Herman’s two-year contract extension sends a message that the school is committed to him as the leader of UT football both now and going forward. The UT System Board of Regents approved Herman’s extension Thursday morning as part of the consent agenda items. All multi-year contracts at UT must be approved by the regents. “The message we want to send to our head coach, to the players on the team, to the recruits and Longhorn Nation is that we’re committed to Tom Herman as the head coach of Longhorn football,” Fenves told the American-Statesman. Herman, 43, was under contract through 2021. His extension pushes Herman’s contract through the 2023 season. Herman is scheduled to receive $6.5 million for 2022 and $6.750 million for 2023. -Brian Davis, hookem. Read More.
