Former Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman is heading to the NFL.

After being fired in Austin following a disappointing 2020 campaign, Herman has agreed to join the Chicago Bears coaching staff.

The NFC North franchise announced the news on Monday, March 1.

“We have hired former Texas head coach Tom Herman as an offensive analyst/special projects coach and Anthony Hibbert as an assistant strength coach,” the Bears announced.

Herman put together a 32-18 record with the Longhorns over the past four seasons, including a perfect 4-0 mark in bowl games.

Herman became one of the hot commodities in college football after leading the Houston Cougars to a 22-4 record in two seasons, including a 13-1 mark in 2015 which was capped off by a win over Florida State in the Peach Bowl. Herman became just the fourth head coach in NCAA history to record at least 13 wins in his first season and only the fifth coach to win the first 10 games of his career.

We will have to see if he can recapture the magic he held in Houston while in Chicago.
