  • Name to that gig shortly after the Longhorns fired Tom Herman.

  • That's a $25 million show you the door in Austin.

  • Herman, 15.

  • His coaches.

  • 10.

  • He lasted four seasons.

  • Sarkeesian has seven years head coaching on his resume.

  • Battled addiction.

  • Currently the offensive coordinator at Alabama.

  • We'll roll with the Tide through the title game next week.

  • I have to say, I'm, Ah, lot of emotions, but all of the good ones, right?

  • I'm excited.

  • I'm pumped.

  • I'm honored.

  • I'm humbled.

  • Um, this morning I was on the phone with my parents, My dad's 84 years old, and I mentioned about E Think I'm getting this Texas head coaching job.

  • He said, You know, about 20 years ago, you told me Dad, that's the job.

  • That's the best job in America and it's amazing to think.

  • Here we are.

  • I want when people when people watch us play that they're proud of the brand of football that we put on the field but is also a discipline, physical style of football.

  • Uh, that is gonna be needed to win championships.

  • Texas had the fifth most ESPN 300 recruits from 2017 through 2020 but they haven't had nearly the level of success as the other top teams to recruit that.

  • Well, you see the names on the board there.

  • The Longhorns 33rd, by the way, in 2022.

  • Texas hosts Alabama.

  • Let's bring in Jesse Palmer.

  • You love the Sarkeesian higher.

  • Why I do.

  • I think anywhere Steve Sarkisian's been.

  • They've been able to develop quarterbacks at Washington, USC or Alabama.

  • And I think one of the biggest keys in a program sustaining success long term is having a high level play at the QB position.

  • Even after a guy gets drafted, her graduates next guy steps in and plays at a high level.

  • You see that at Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson year after year, we haven't seen that in Texas.

  • There's been a lot of mediocre quarterback play split in between Colt McCoy in Sam Ellinger.

  • I think that's one of the big reasons why their last Big 12 championship came back in 2000 and nine.

  • So you take a look at Sarkisian's resume of quarterbacks Carson Palmer, Matt Liner, Jake Locker, Mark Sanchez to a now Mac Jones he'll be able to recruit good quarterbacks year after year and start to build consistency at that position.

  • Well, you mentioned Ellinger is being one of the good quarterbacks.

  • That's who Herman had.

  • So why didn't it work for Tom Herman this season?

  • Throughout the year just wasn't good enough on defense early, there was a switch over both.

  • Native positions on both sides of the ball is well, at the end of the day, just from recruiting and missing a key positions and obviously not winning the key games over the course of four years.

  • Tom Herman.

  • They weren't able to win more than five games in Conference three of those years.

  • The expectations simply a Texas what?

  • They can recruit his toe, win Big 12 championships and get to the college football playoff.

  • Ultimately, I think there was a lot said in that statement by the university.

  • There was measurable progress Over the course of four years.

  • Things were getting better, just not getting better quick enough.

  • And now it's Steve Sarkisian's turn.

  • Charlie Strong got three years.

  • Tom Herman got four.

  • Somebody tweeted a there.

  • Either Incompetent are impatient when it comes to hire and head football coach is a Texas.

  • What are they?

  • Well, I think they're certainly impatient.

  • But listen, I think, uh, today in college football in 2020 you're expected toe win now.

  • Four years for Tom Herman certainly doesn't seem like a lot.

  • But when you take a look, I think that the budget Texas has with what they can recruit in their facilities, they feel like they should be competing.

  • And I think they should be competing for Big 12 championships year in year out.

  • Jesse Palmer on Steve Sarkeesian in and Tom Herman out at Texas.

  • It wasn't for second chances.

  • We'd all be alone.

  • Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkeesian.

  • They've got history together on the same staff at USC under Pete Carroll.

  • Both eventually became head coaches at U.

  • S.

  • C.

  • Then there on the Alabama staff under Nick Saban.
