Tom Herman, the heir to Steve Spurrier's throne?

Tom Herman is 8-0 at Houston, and South Carolina needs a new football coach. It's apparently looking a lot like 1+1 to Gamecocks athletic director Ray Tanner.


University of Houston head coach Tom Herman is the clear leading candidate for the vacant Gamecocks job, according to multiple sources.

Herman has been on the radar of South Carolina athletics director Ray Tanner since 2012, his first as offensive coordinator at Ohio State under Urban Meyer.

Houston fans will get another chance to appease Tom Herman by showing up to Cougars games on Saturday, when the Coogs host Cincinnati in an American Athletic Conference showdown at 3:30 on ESPN2.
