During college, Edwards played football for numerous teams including the University of California, Monterey Peninsula Junior College, and San Diego State. He graduated from San Diego State with a degree in criminal justice. Afterwards, he joined the NFL and played nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1977 to 1985. He appeared in Super Bowl XV, and never missed a game for the entire nine seasons, and is noted for being the person who made The Miracle at the Meadowlands possible, returning a last-minute fumble for the winning touchdown. His net worth started to increase at this point, and when he was cut from the team, he moved to the Los Angeles Rams. He also played briefly for the Atlanta Falcons before retiring.
After retiring from playing, Herman became a defensive assistant coach at San Jose State University, then an NFL scout for the Kansas City Chiefs and was later an assistant head coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2001, he was hired as the head coach for the New York Jets despite his limited experience, and would compile a 39-41 record with the team. They reached the playoffs more times than not. But the lack of development in the team led to him being traded (unusually) to the Kansas City Chiefs. As part of the Chiefs, the team would see a lot of highs and lows as well.
They finished the 2006 season with a 9-7 record and the following year were plagued with problems as well, and in an effort to rebuild the team in 2008, they went on a franchise record of 12 consecutive regular season defeats, which led to Edwards being relieved the following year.
