Glimpse coach Tom Herman’s romantic side in 18-year-old notes to wife Michelle

Posted April 4th, 2017


Aw young love and football…

Before all of his dreams came true, Texas football coach Tom Herman caught a lucky break and landed a job as a graduate assistant at the University of Texas. Unfortunately, his girlfriend (now wife) Michelle was not included in the move from Southern California, Sports Illustrated reports. So how did Herman keep the long distance love alive?

Michelle took to Twitter to share a few notes (all on Longhorn stationary, of course) Herman had written her during that time that she had found while cleaning out old boxes. She uses hashtags #younglove and #bigdreams.


The notes are all addressed to “Belle” and mention “stickers so you can decorate your binder and write ‘I love Texas’ on it,” a “My fiance is a G.A.” pin and lastly a “folder for our new apartment complex.”

“I hope you like it,” Herman writes.

Herman responded to his wife’s tweet saying, “Wow!! Lots of emotions swelling up. So good to be back where we always dreamed. She’s been by my A1 since day 1.”
