Texas fires Herman after 4 seasons, hires Tide OC Sarkisian
Texas has hired Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian as the Longhorns new coach.
The move comes just a few hours after Texas announced the firing of Tom Herman after four seasons with no Big 12 championships.
Sarkisian is the architect of a Crimson Tide offense that has produced two Heisman Trophy finalists in getting Alabama to the College Football Playoff championship against Ohio State.
He also was 45-36 as head coach at Washington and USC in previous jobs.
