Tom Herman can finally move out of the 900-square-foot apartment in Austin he has been using as his temporary home since he was hired as the next Texas football coach. In an interesting twist of real estate timing and Texas football connections, Herman’s new landlord is his old offensive coordinator and replacement at Houston.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Herman will be moving into a house owned by Major Applewhite on a month-to-month basis until he and his family finds a more permanent home in Austin. It’s a much-needed upgrade for the Hermans, who received a noise complaint at the apartment in the first time the whole family was in town to visit. For Applewhite, the former Texas quarterback and now Houston’s head coach, the timing was perfect to keep the house occupied.
“It so happens their tenant was moving out Feb. 1,” Tom Herman said Wednesday, via the Dallas Morning News. “I said, ‘If you’ll rent it to us month-to-month, we’d love to do it.’ Now when the kids and Michelle come to visit on weekends, we’ll have a little bit more room to spread out.
“No more noise complaints.”
Herman was speaking to reporters about his 2017 recruiting class, ranked No. 26 nationally and No. 2 in the Big 12 behind Oklahoma.
