Video: Tom Herman's first 24 hours as Houston's head coach

The phrase "burning the candle at both ends" was invented with coaches like Tom Herman in mind.

From the end of last week through New Year's Day - or January 12, depending on what happens in the Sugar Bowl - Herman will wear two important, all-consuming hats: offensive coordinator of an Ohio State team striving for a national championship, and head coach of a Houston program looking to re-tool in its quest to become the premier Group of Five program in college football.

Cameras followed Herman as he took off his scarlet and gray hat for his Cougar red hat, flying from Columbus to Houston for a day of introductions as Houston's head coach.

Finally, you know a coaching hire is important to a university when the athletics director, president and the chancellor show up to make statements at the introductory press conference.
