Check Out This Adorable Photo Of Tom Herman Hugging Mack Brown

Before Texas head coach Tom Herman took the podium for his introductory press conference, he gave a giant hug to Mack Brown.

This evening Tom Herman was officially announced as the new Texas head coach in a press conference, but before Herman took the podium to answer questions, he found former Texas head coach Mack Brown and gave him a big ol' hug.

Check it out:

See, Herman and Brown have some history. In 1999—Brown's second season as Texas head coach—Herman was hired on as a graduate assistant and worked with the offensive line.

Herman would leave two years later for another position at Sam Houston State, but you could say Texas is where it all began for Herman, so it's certainly cool to see the two reunited.

Herman, the once young apprentice, has finally taken over the the job of the master, you could say.
