The Possibly Insane Tom Herman Is Now Headbutting Players before Games

While big-time college football coaches of prestige programs are well-compensated, there's an awful lot of pressure to win on a regular basis.
These relentless expectations may have just claimed yet another victim.
University of Texas head coach Tom Herman is in no danger of losing his gig at the moment, but he appears to have completely snapped.
Before his Longhorns hooked up with Baylor, this leader of young men decided to go the extra mile to motivate his student-athletes.
Well, it went a little something like this:

Yeah, that's one word for it.
Most of the Longhorns looked on with a palpable mix of fear and confusion while their head coach was violently head-butting senior captain Malcolm Roach, who was definitely wearing his helmet at the time.
Dude may as well have been eating a W.
Texas fans weren't the least bit amused, yet alone motivated:
I used to have a middle school coach who few people took serious because he used to head butt players in practice without a helmet. That’s a middle school assistant who nobody took serious because of that. Not the coach at THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS! Get over the BS, Tom Herman.— Landry Locker (@LandryLocker) November 24, 2019
Looks like those helmet head butts for Tom Herman didn't pay off.— The Texas Hangman (@TheTexasHangman) November 24, 2019
Yeah, the Horns responded to their head coach's madness with a feeble performance in a 24-10 loss at Baylor, which dropped Texas to a decidedly mediocre 6-5 on the season.
Maybe Herman can pistol-whip a fan or mascot next week.
