8) Houston hires Bun B to coaching staff
Tom Herman might be gone, but the brand of Houston lives on and they’ve established a culture there that is very good for recruiting. The city of Houston is a hot bed for famous rap artists such as Slim Thug, Mike Jones, and Pimp C. Herman took advantage of this and fully embraced himself into the Houston culture. This did well in recruiting and helped Herman grab a lot of the local talent that resides in the city. Now that he’s left for Texas there’s a missing piece connecting the university to the city, but new Head Coach Major Applewhite knows just how to keep that connection Herman built.
Bun B has accomplished a lot in his life. He and Pimp C combined to form one of the most famous rap duos the world has ever seen in UGK, and following Pimp C’s death in 2007, Bun B went on to have a successful solo career on top of this. Now that he’s moved on from music, Bun B has done teaching at Rice University and made a popular coloring book with author Shea Serrano. He’s clearly shown an interest in involving himself in other areas besides music. So, how ’bout football coaching?
His main role would be to recruit the city of Houston, and he would dominate the rest of the country in doing so. How can any player pass up the chance to play for a rap legend? On top of this, there’s reason to believe Bun B could be a pretty solid coach. He’s spent enough of his life hanging out with players that some of their knowledge of the sport has to have rubbed off on him. The rest he can pick up on the job with Applewhite while they’re winning 10 straight national championships on purely Houston talent.
