UH coach Herman fitted for grill by Paul Wall after winning conference championship

After winning the American Athletic Conference championship, the University of Houston football team is due for some jewelry.

But head football coach Tom Herman is going for more than just a championship ring. The first-year head coach promised his team before the season that he would get a grill if the Cougars won their conference championship.

"I've been here 12 months and one of the biggest things I've said is I've never lied to them yet and our coaches have never lied to them," Herman said.

Herman made good on that promise Tuesday, getting fitted for a grill by Houston-born rapper Paul Wall and jewelry expert Johnny Dang on Tuesday.

"Of course, I'm proud of my school, I'm proud of the coach, too," Wall said. "He said he wanted a grill. That means something to me because I love making grills for people. It's going to be shining. It's definitely going to be shining."

"It's going to be iced out," Herman said.
