Tom Herman is having a bad summer.
First, he was dragged into the Zach Smith saga at Ohio State, accused of being the source for a series of articles reporter Brett McMurphy wrote about domestic violence allegations leveled at Smith. Then, Ohio State confirmed that he was the other staffer with Smith at a South Florida strip club in 2014.
Saturday, he lost his season opener to heavy underdog Maryland for the second season in a row.
Thursday, he decided he'd had enough, deleting Twitter from his phone.
Take it away, Longhorn Wire:
In the case of Longhorns head coach Tom Herman, life might improve without the Twitter app.
Herman said Thursday he deleted the app from his phone, according to the Dallas Morning News.
On Monday, Herman said the atmosphere at the Texas facility “was like a funeral home.” He added, “If it doesn’t matter, then you don’t care.”
At 7-7, hashtags such as #FireTomHerman and other variations of the same message began cropping up after Maryland beat the Longhorns for the second straight year in the season opener.
Herman's Twitter account is still active (and his DMs are open), but from the sound of it, don't expect a response from the coach anytime soon.
