Sherman’s Job Is Safe At Texas A&M

Last week, Missouri’s Gary Pinkel found himself in hot water after being hit with a DUI.  The coach survived with a suspension and a hit to his wallet.

The other football coach entering the SEC next year — Texas A&M’s Mike Sherman — has found himself on the hot seat for other reasons.  His Top 10 team has turned into a 6-5 mess and that’s led some/many Aggie fans to call for his head.  For now, however, said head appears safe.

A&M president R. Bowen Loftin was asked yesterday if his coach is safe with four years left on a $1.8 million-per-year deal.  “As far as I’m concerned, yes.  We don’t want to make any hasty moves, and we look forward to him being our football coach in the future.”

Texas A&M is 25-24 in four seasons under Sherman.  They are just 15-17 in Big 12 play.  If the Aggies weren’t facing such a major transition this offseason — moving from the Big 12 to the SEC — we believe it’s highly unlikely Sherman’s status would be so secure.

Meanwhile, A&M has received a bill from the Big 12 for its exit fee, but the school continues to try to negotiate that number down.
