Tom Herman left Houston to take the job at Texas, but he’s proud his former team was left in good hands with the promotion of offensive coordinator Major Applewhite to head coach.


It seemed as though Houston had found its replacement for Tom Herman as reports circulated that the Cougars were on the verge of hiring Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.

Herman couldn’t be happier that his former employer went in a different direction.

Houston named Major Applewhite head coach Friday, promoting him from the offensive coordinator position he served in under Herman for the last two seasons. Herman hopped on Twitter and sent out a congratulatory message not long after the promotion became official.

“I’m so excited and proud for Major that he has been named the head coach at Houston,” Herman’s message read. “We poured a lot of energy into that program together the past two years and Major will do a terrific job continuing to build on that. His goal has always been to have an opportunity to run his own program, he’s ready for this next step and I’m just thrilled for Major, Julie and his family.”

It’s unclear if Herman offered Applewhite a spot on his staff to return to Texas, where Applewhite starred at quarterback from 1998-2001 and coached under Mack Brown from 2008-13. Houston’s defensive coordinator Tony Orlando is expected to join Herman in Austin after coaching in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Applewhite’s ties to in the state should help continue bringing talented recruits to Houston, although he’ll now be competing for those players against his former boss.
