    A&M has a new coach

    Mike Sherman, Aggie website seems pretty split on it. What does this do for their program, ie recruiting against Okalahoma and Texas and chances to win the Big XII South?

    Yeah, that was more of a result that he was a horrid GM. He loaded up on poor players when he had the dual role, got fired as the GM, and then couldn't win with the crappy players he signed and got canned as HC.

    Good coach, bad GM.

    Re: A & M Head Coach is...

    I think its a lot harder to go from the pros to college than from college to the pros. Does he have any college experience.

    Re: A & M Head Coach is...

    I believe i saw somewhere he was actually an assistant coach at aTm before being pulled up by Holmgren to join him in Green Bay. If true, that makes more sense as to why aTm wanted him. He knows the program and administration, knows what is expected out of a hc at aTm.

    Mike Sherman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Was at aTm as an oline coach and like most coaches worked his way us as a college coach first.

    I would think being a former pro coach, knowing what it takes to get there - stuff like that, would be an appealing pitch to kids.

    The last guy to come from the NFL to the Big 12 didnt work out so well. Just ask Nebraska fans. How is the Ofensive Genus working out for Notre Dame?
