Texas A&M fires coach Mike Sherman
By David Ubben
Texas A&M football coach Mike Sherman has been fired, university athletic director Bill Byrne said Thursday.
The school has yet to decide on an interim coach for the Aggies (6-6, 4-5 Big 12), who are eligible to play in a bowl game, Byrne said in a statement announcing the decision.
Sherman was 25-25 in four seasons.
More coming on the blog shortly.
Spoiler alert: Not the right call, Aggies.
Byrne said Sherman had run the football program with "the highest levels of character and integrity" in four seasons and put the welfare of student-athletes first.
"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," Byrne said of Sherman.
