Mike Sherman To Be Fired By Texas A&M, According To Report

Mike Sherman will be fired as Texas A&M head coach, according to a report on Thursday afternoon. Sherman doesn't know it, and is out recruiting, but the decision to part ways has been made. He has not been told of the decision, however, which could create for an awkward meeting at some point -- either with university officials or recruits learning of the news as he is.

The news comes from Kirk Bohls, who cites a source close to the decision. Let's all remember that Sherman is on the road, and may be learning of this news the same way we are. Fun!

Texas A&M has decided to fire football Mike Sherman but has not yet notified him, a prominent Aggie source just told me.

Oh, and there's this whole thing about the extension, too.

A&M would owe Mike Sherman between $3M-$5M because he didn't sign his extension contract, the Aggie source says.

Sherman did meet with at least one regent on Thursday, but chose to leave College Station after to continue to recruit, according to multiple reports. However, it now appears his time as head coach of the Aggies may be coming to an end.
