The Chicago Bears announced on Monday afternoon they have hired former Ohio State offensive coordinator and Texas head coach Tom Herman as an offensive analyst and special projects coach.
The 45-year-old Herman went 32-18 with the Longhorns from 2017-20 but was fired and replaced by Steve Sarkisian in early January.
Prior to arriving at Texas, he served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Texas State (2005-06), Rice (2007-08), Iowa State (2009-11) and Ohio State (2012-14), helping the Buckeyes to a victory in the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship.
Herman, who won the Broyles Award that season as the nation’s top assistant coach, was also the head coach at Houston from 2015-16.
