Breaking News: A&M’s Sherman fired

Texas A&M is on the verge of enduring the most expensive year in college sports history.

Football Coach Mike Sherman has been fired and A&M is expected to pay nearly $20 million to the Big 12 Conference and Sherman, in addition to the what will likely be a hefty contract to the Aggies, who are leaving for the Big 12 for the SEC July 1, 2012, for a new head coach.

“I appreciate Coach Sherman’s selfless service to Texas A&M as our head football coach and his tireless efforts in building leaders of character,” AD Bill Byrne said in a statement. “He is truly one of the great offensive minds in football, both collegiate and professional, and I know that he has much to offer the game of football in the future..He ran the football program with the highest levels of character and integrity…and put the welfare of student-athletes first.”

Sherman, who took over in 2007 after the resignation of Dennis Franchione, went 25-25 in four years. The Aggies started the season in the Top 10 this year, but lost four of their final five games in a disappointing 6-6 (4-5 Big 12) finish, which included four losses when leading by double-figures in the second half, the low point coming when Texas won 27-25 in College Station on Thanksgiving in what could be the last game in a long time.

“I’ve never experienced a season like this and I don’t plan on experiencing a season like it again,” Sherman said after the loss to Texas. “This was a very difficult season to swallow. We have good kids, they work hard, but for whatever reason the ball bounced funny for us sometimes, and we didn’t make the play when we need to make it to win the games we didn’t.”

Four of the six losses were by a combined 10 points, and two were in overtime.

His best and only winning season came last year when the Aggies won their last six regular-season games and lost in the Cotton Bowl to finish 9-4.

It has not been decided who will coach the upcoming bowl game.

While in the Big 12, the team had more than seven wins just twice since 2002 and now will be in the toughest division in college football – the SEC West.

Good luck.
