We caught up with Houston head coach Tom Herman to discuss:

• His wildly successful rookie head coaching season, ending in both an AAC championship and Peach Bowl win over Florida State

• How he ended up getting talked into getting grills (and not the backyard kind) from Paul Wall

• Why, even with constant attention regarding big college football job openings, Houston is the place for him

• His favorite playcall from the 2015 season, the origin of the play, the initial plan, and how he'd grade the overall execution

• What it took to get buy-in from players he didn't recruit to Houston

• What it would take to get him to leave a winning situation in Houston
