Many expect Strong to take a year off from coaching, and then revisit the coaching landscape in early 2018. As for Texas, it is expected they will formally introduce Tom Herman as their head coach later today. Herman, who advised LSU at 5am this morning he was leaning towards the Longhorns, will be stepping his biggest challenge to date in Austin.
