Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Former University of Houston and now San Diego Chargers Running Back Kenneth Farrow spoke with the media after San Diego’s 21-13 victory over the Texans at NRG Stadium. He weighed in on the departure of Head Coach Tom Herman from his alma mater and what it means for the current Cougar team.
“Me and Adrian McDonald, we kind of had a few words with some of those guys. Just to let them know that, you know, that’s kind of part of the business. It doesn’t mean anything less of what he thought of those guys or anything like that. But I think they took it well and they understand that what we’ve got going at U of H, they’ve got to keep it going and it’s up to them,” Farrow said.
Chargers Safety Adrian McDonald was a teammate with Kenneth as a Cougar and is the university’s all-time interceptions record holder. For Farrow, he believed that the fate of Coach Herman had a lot to do with Houston’s inability to get into a major conference.
“I think once we couldn’t get into the Big 12 I think that kind of hurt us. Trying to get into the power five and make that move to try to get into the playoffs… We’ve got to wait until that time comes around again where they have another vote. They’re just going to have to win more games,” Kenneth said.
“Why we’re not in a power five, you know, it is what it is. But for the time being, they’re at where they’re at right now and they’ve got to make it work, and they’ve got to force their way in. So we’ll see what happens over the next couple years. Hopefully, they can have a couple more years like they’ve been having.”
