The Audible: How Ohio State prepped Tom Herman for Houston job

Tom Herman is finally fully invested in his new job as the head coach at Houston.

What that means is he can finally catch his breath.

For weeks, Herman was working two jobs as Ohio State’s offensive coordinator and the newly-hired leader of the Cougars. But with the Buckeyes’ national championship run finally complete, Herman has moved into his new gig in Houston.

Herman recently joined Bruce Feldman on a new edition of The Audible to discuss the transition. Among the topics covered in the conversation:

* The best advice he got from Urban Meyer about being a head coach

* How coaching Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller forced him to improve

* How Ezekiel Elliott suddenly became a breakout star

* Why he gave his son an awesome middle name (hint: it’ll help him with girls)
