Another former Ohio State coach will be on television screens this season, as former Buckeye offensive coordinator and Texas head coach Tom Herman is joining CBS Sports Network as an analyst.

The network announced on Tuesday that Herman will be joined by former Utah State running back and Super Bowl winner Robert Turbin as an analyst in CBS Sports’ studio lineup.

Herman served as the offensive coordinator for three seasons at Ohio State from 2012-14 in which he helped lead the Buckeyes to a national championship in 2014. For his efforts, he was awarded with the Broyles Award, given annually to the top assistant coach in college football.

Following his stint with the Buckeyes, he became the head coach at Houston for two seasons, leading the Cougars to a 22-4 record before accepting the head coaching job at Texas. Herman’s success at Houston did not follow, as he was ousted from Texas after four seasons and a 32-18 record, though he won a bowl game in each of his four seasons at the helm of the Longhorns.

Herman then joined the staff of the Chicago Bears in 2021 as an offensive analyst, but he was not retained by new head coach Matt Eberflus for this upcoming season. Before his time at Ohio State, Herman had stints at Texas as a graduate assistant, then assistant coaching roles at Sam Houston State, Texas State, Rice and Iowa State.
