Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) is the Head Football Coach at the University of Texas. Herman previously coached at a plethora of schools, most recently at Ohio State University and University of Houston, before being named Head Coach at Texas in 2016. Herman helped Ohio State win the 2014 National Championship as Offensive Coordinator and in his first head coaching job at Houston, won the 2015 AAC Title.

In this clip, Herman emphasizes the value of opposing coaches exhibiting mutual respect for each other. Yes, for three hours you want to defeat your opponent. But the bigger picture is that coaches should work together to make the sport as a whole the best it can be.
