From 1947 to 1950, Herrerias played college basketball at the University of San Francisco, where he was a member of the 1949 NIT championship team coached by Pete Newell. Herrerias received All-American honors (HM) in 1950. After graduating, he became head coach at St. Ignatius Prep. As coach, Herrerias led St. Ignatius to four state titles, in 1951, 1954, 1955, and 1956. Herrerias also taught history and typing at St. Igantius.
Herrerias reunited with Newell as an assistant coach at Cal. In 1960, Herrerias succeeded Newell as Cal's head coach. He resigned in 1968 because of a dispute with athlete Bob Presley. Presley was suspended from the team for violation of team training rules. Presley was reinstated three days later, but relations between African-American and white players on the team remained tense. Herrerias and Newell resigned after the season. Herrerias has a record of 97-101 in his eight seasons at Cal.
