Texas Gives Football Coach Herman 2-Year Contract Extension

The University of Texas System regents have approved a two-year contract extension for Longhorns football coach Tom Herman after the program's first 10-win season in a decade.

The deal approved Thursday extends Herman's guaranteed contract through 2023 and will pay him $6.5 million in 2022 and $6.750 million in the final year.

After a 7-6 finish in his first season in 2017, Texas went 10-4 in 2018, the first time the program had reached 10 wins since the 2009 season when the Longhorns played for the national championship. The Longhorns played in the Big 12 championship game last season and defeated Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
