Former Ohio State offensive coordinator and current Houston head coach Tom Herman is one of the hottest names on the market right now for open jobs, so much so that Houston recently offered him a raise to $3 million annually to remain as the Cougars' leader.
Herman's name had been popular for the South Carolina, Southern California and Georgia jobs, among others, but according to Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle, Herman has "agreed in principle" to a deal to remain at Houston.

Herman hasn't yet signed a deal, so the option for him to leave is still on the table. But, for now, it appears he'll remain with the Cougars for at least one more season.
