It’s no secret that the Charlie Strong era of Texas Longhorns recruits were never fans of Tom Herman when he came in to coach Texas prior to the 2017 season. Former Texas defensive lineman Charles Omenihu even went as far as to blame bad coaching for the Longhorns’ 2018 Big 12 Championship loss to the Oklahoma Sooners in Herman’s second year.
“My senior year, if we had better coaching, we would have whooped them,” Omenihu wrote on Twitter in a since deleted tweet.
