Herman defends hiring Beck as Texas OC

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) New Texas coach Tom Herman vigorously defended hiring former Ohio State assistant Tim Beck to be his offensive coordinator on Thursday, saying he was "surprised" by some of the social media criticism from Longhorns and Ohio State fans.

Herman said Beck was his primary target as offensive coordinator. The hire was announced this week after Ohio State lost 31-0 to Clemson in the College Football Playoff.

"I was really surprised because it was very well known that Tim Beck didn't call plays at Ohio State," Herman said. "I think the negativity was misplaced on him."
