Franchione tenure marked by mediocrity, embarrassment
Dennis Franchione didn't bother breaking this news to big-shot boosters via a secret newsletter. He went public with it right away Friday night, announcing the inevitable: His tenure at Texas A&M is over.
Franchione made it official not long after the kind of win that didn't happen often enough in his five years coaching the Aggies. His team had just outscored thoroughly overrated Texas 38-30 -- a second straight victory over the Longhorns, but just his 19th Big 12 victory in 40 tries.
