    New Aggie Website - ShermTracker

    Aggie Fans are starting to turn on Mike Sherman.

    Sherm Tracker | Tracking Texas A&M Football Coache Mike Sherman's progress against the gold standard that is Dennis Franchione

    This site is dedicated to tracking the achievements of Texas A&M head football coach Mike Sherman against the highest of standards: Dennis Franchione.

    Below, you'll find a head to head comparison of their records; Fran's reflect only the first forty-two games of his career at A&M to match the tenure of Big Sherm.

    All information on this site was hastily thrown together, and - if we're being honest - there's a good chance that much of it is inaccurate. Feel free to use this for gambling purposes.

    Before their winning streak last year, he was on the hot seat. Unless they totally collapse, I can't see them firing the coach while paying the exit fees and likely on a reduced revenue stream for a couple years as they ease into the SEC. Big donor or no, they wouldn't do that would they?

    Re: New Aggie Website - ShermTracker

    Here's the crazy thing. His buyout is dirt cheap.

    Texas A&M rewarded football coach Mike Sherman with a raise and a year's extension, but also gave itself the option of adding two years to the contract and added a sliding buyout.

    Sherman, who is 19-19 in three seasons, will be paid $2.2 million per year through March 2016, with A&M holding options for 2016 and 2017.

    Sherman's current seven-year contract was scheduled to run through 2015 and it paid him $1.8 million annually. That contract, signed in December 2007, didn't have a buyout clause. Under the new agreement approved by Texas A&M's Board of Regents on Friday, Sherman would be paid $1.8 million if the pact would be terminated by A&M without cause before March 2012. The buyout would drop to $1.44 million in 2013, eventually sliding to $500,000 in 2016.
    They could fire him at the end of the season for less than it would take to keep him for the next year.

    When he was hired he said something similar to "it's not for the money and if I'm not getting it done I'll resign", which is probably why the buyouts are so small.


    I'm not saying they will fire him but his contract does not prohibit them doing so.

    Maybe they are also turning on him because he didn't seem to thrilled to have to play in the SEC.


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Seemed like they would get over that but the second half choking is what has pushed them toward the ledge.
