Sorry, Charlie.

In Las Vegas, oddsmakers are asking one of the questions on the minds of Texas Longhorns fans — who will coach the ‘Horns in 2017?

For Bovada, there’s basically only one answer.

Will Tom Herman be the coach of the Texas Longhorns for the 2017 season?

Yes -500 (1/5)

No +300 (3/1)

And that’s it — the oddsmaker doesn’t list any other candidates. In looking at the list of five other possible candidates compiled by the Dallas Morning News, the choice is understandable.

If president Greg Fenves decides to make a change and oust head coach Charlie Strong, it’s going to be Houston’s Tom Herman or bust. And baed on everything that’s come out about Herman, the ‘Horns aren’t going to bust on this one unless the administration manages to screw everything up in an incredible manner.

In other words, there’s definitely a chance, albeit a relatively small one.
