Former Florida and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has mentioned as a possible candidate at Texas should the Longhorns move on from coach Tom Herman.

Longhorn fans are increasingly frustrated with Herman, who is 30-17 overall and 21-12 in Big 12 play.

This year, Texas is 5-2 and the consensus is that Herman and the Longhorns have fallen short of expectations. The issue came up on Monday at Herman’s weekly press conference. Herman was asked what he tells players and recruits when his job security comes into question with Meyer’s name being mentioned.

“I’m concerned about our players. I’m concerned about our program. I’m concerned about beating Kansas. I’m concerned about all of our goals still being in front of us,” he said, per Football Scoop.

“With our players it’s really easy because they know the truth. There’s a second of people within our enterprise that know the truth, and then there’s rumors. There’s unnamed sources, there’s agendas, there’s Internet reporters that claim their own opinion as fact. The player part is really easy, almost comical where a player will come up to me and say, ‘Coach, you’ll never guess what lunacy just came across my feed.’

“The recruiting part’s a different story. When you have the things that have been written about us and our program, myself and our future, very unfounded articles that state opinion as fact, that state unnamed sources as factual, that’s very hard to defend against. If I’m a competing recruiter, what do you do? You press print and you say, ‘Look, this is true. It must be true, it’s on,” Herman concluded.
