Tom Herman: 'I don't have time to worry' about Urban Meyer's comments

(Associated Press)

Tom Herman isn’t going to get into a public back-and-forth with Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer said earlier in the week that Texas got a “dose of reality” with a 51-41 loss to Maryland in Week 1. Meyer also pointed out Herman’s comment about sprinkling fairy dust on the Texas team he inherited and expecting the Longhorns to re-emerge as a national power after a 5-7 season in 2016.

When asked about Meyer’s comments Thursday, Herman had this to say.

“I don’t have time to worry about comments made by somebody else and about their program,” Herman said. “I’m worried about our program and winning a game. Anybody that’s been around me and my staff for the last nine months knows that we’ve never disparaged the previous staff or our current players.”

When he was asked a follow-up question, Herman simply replied “next question.”

Herman and Meyer worked together at Ohio State. Herman was the team’s offensive coordinator as the Buckeyes won the National Championship following the 2014 season. Herman was officially introduced as Houston’s coach shortly after Ohio State’s title.
