Florida Atlantic hires Tom Herman as football coach

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Former Texas and Houston head coach Tom Herman will take over at Florida Atlantic as it heads into its first season in the American Athletic Conference.

The hire comes just days after FAU fired Willie Taggart, who went 15-18 in his three seasons with the Owls. Details of the contract with Herman were not immediately available.

"We are incredibly excited to welcome Tom Herman to Paradise," FAU Director of Athletics Brian White said Tuesday. "Throughout the process and the more we talked with Coach Herman, the more it became apparent to me that he was the right person to lead our football program. Beyond his knowledge of the game, which is obvious by his success over the years, he also truly cares about the young people in his program."
