iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Two candidates have reportedly emerged as potential replacements for former Houston Cougars head coach Tom Herman, who signed as The University of Texas at Austin’s new head coach last month.
Sources tell ESPN former Louisiana State University head coach Les Miles and University of Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin are being considered for the position.
Tilman Fertitta, the Houston board of regents chairman, confirmed to the Houston Chronicle that Miles was “on the list.”
Fertitta added that the University of Houston is currently trying to whittle down the number of contenders to about a handful. He told the Chronicle the school may reach a decision by the “middle of next week.”
