Georgia Football: Houston’s Tom Herman is Out as a Georgia Candidate, Kirby Smart is the Guy
Tom Herman has agreed in principle to a deal with the Houston Cougars per Tom Herman himself.
That means a few things:
- He’s not coming to Georgia.
- He was never offered by Georgia.
I would have liked to see those conversations between Georgia and Herman take place, but this further cements (in my opinion) the notion that Georgia is going after one guy and one guy only. And given that, it has to be Kirby Smart. Sources are trickling down to support that notion and it’s not remotely surprising.
What could become interesting, however, is who Smart brings with him to fill out his staff and how much those pieces get paid. Let’s face it, if this is as it seems…there is no number two. Kirby has all the leverage for himself and the staff and Greg McGarity can not afford to screw this up. That could result in an All-Star cast of assistant coaches and coordinators. Or it could result in a slew of folks getting paid too much money.
That’s all I got/
