Sources: Texas Will Make Last Ditch "Mega-Offer" To Tom Herman Tonight

The Texas Longhorns aren't giving up on landing Tom Herman yet. A high-ranking source told Chat Sports that Texas officials will meet with Herman tonight in an effort to lure him to Austin. 

Our source tells us that Texas officials will present a "mega-offer" to Herman. That offer could be as long as eight-to-10 years, worth $6 million year. That would make Herman one of the highest paid coaches in all college football. Texas AD Mike Perrin had previously contacted Herman's agent, Trace Armstrong. 

As first reported by Chat Sports, LSU is already close to a deal with Herman. Given that Herman is a former graduate assistant at Texas, and the school officials believe Texas is his first choice. Paired with the aggressive money offer, Texas officials believe they can convince Herman to take the job offer.

Following Texas' 31-9 loss to TCU Friday, our source expects Texas to officially announce the firing of Charlie Strong within the next 24 hours. Strong has posted three consecutive losing seasons. If Texas can't land Herman, their No. 1 choice, it's unclear who they'll target to replace Strong. 

Herman and his Houston Cougars are coming off an upset loss to the Memphis Tigers Friday. Despite the loss, he remains a coveted coaching candidate, thanks in large part to wins over Florida State last year and Oklahoma and Louisville this year.
