USA Today did the hard work for us in understanding Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman’s buyout as of Dec. 1 if school officials eventually opt to move on without him.

From 247Sports: “Herman’s buyout [would be] $15,416,667. Herman is 27-17 overall and 18-12 in conference play as Texas’ head coach. Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman wrote in his weekly column that Herman needs a huge finish to the season to keep his job.”
