(Anglea Wang/Texas Athletics)

Head Coach Tom Herman was fired after four seasons of leading the Longhorns football team, Texas Athletics Director Chris Del Conte announced in a statement on Saturday.

The announcement comes after the Longhorns season came to a close with their last bowl game played earlier this week. Herman was 32-18 in his time at The University of Texas.

CBS Sports reports that Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will be the replacement of Herman, but UT has not confirmed.

Fans had been pleading with Del Conte to replace the head coach after another troubling season that left them out of the Big 12 Championship game. Fans and news sources began to speculate who the coach might be replaced with throwing around names like Urban Meyer, coaching superstar and who worked alongside Herman at Ohio State.

On Dec. 12, Del Conte released a statement that he would evaluate Herman at the close of the season, but he would remain as coach. With Herman's firing, comes a steep $15 million buyout.

Herman ended his last season 7-3.
