In an unsurprising move, Texas A&M (6-6, 4-5) has parted ways with Coach Mike Sherman.
To be perfectly honest, I would have been shocked if he was not let go by A&M after the disaster which was the 2011 season. The Aggies’ problems stemmed from massive second half collapses suffered during the year. In four of A&M’s 6 losses, the Aggies held halftime leads against their opponents. The Ags were outscored 160-68 in the second half of all 6 losses accrued in 2011.
It goes without saying that part of A&M’s failure this season stems from Sherman’s inability to inspire his players in the latter part of ball games.
Coach Sherman ends his stint at College Station with a 25-25 mark and two bowl appearances (both were losses). No coach has been named to head the team in the coming bowl game, but expect big names to surface soon.
No doubt the Aggies want a big name to lead the team when they go to the SEC.
