Houston’s Tom Herman is, without question, the coolest coach of all time.

According to ESPN’s Matt Fortuna, the 40-year-old will be getting fitted for a grill with rapper Paul Wall on Tuesday after his Cougars took home the AAC title Dec. 5 with a win over Temple.

No, seriously:

If you’re unfamiliar with Paul Wall, this is him rapping about his grill...in Nelly's song "Grillz" (Warning: NSFW):

The rapper, perhaps aware of the promise, gave Herman a shoutout last Saturday:

Matt Fortuna @Matt_Fortuna

Tom Herman will meet Houston rapper Paul Wall tomorrow to be fitted for a grill. Herman promised team he'd get one if UH won league. Oh my.

Update: Tuesday, Dec. 29

Herman kept his word, revealing his new ice Tuesday, via freelance journalist David Ubben:

The grill has "UH" inscribed with red jewels on his two top front teeth while the bottom pair appear to bear his initials.
