Longhorns Daily News: Former Texas coach Tom Herman ranks Longhorns No. 6 in final 2023 Coaches Poll

Plus: Texas WBB takes on TCU tonight

NCAA Football: Florida Atlantic at Illinois Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Former Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman, who was replaced by recent College Football Playoff Semifinals qualifier Steve Sarkisian, recently provided his last Coaches Poll for 2023. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the fired former Texas coach, with roots in Austin as a graduate assistant, ranked Texas as No. 6 to end the year – outside the CFP’s Top 4.

Herman’s ranking, per Inside Texas:

  1. Michigan
  2. Washington
  3. Georgia
  4. Alabama
  5. Florida State
  6. Texas
