Texas A&M Fires Sherman; Will Enter SEC With A New Coach

When you’ve got oil money behind you, it appears you can pay a $9 million buyout pretty easily.  (UPDATE — Sherman’s buyout is only about $5.8M as opposed to the $9M that was reported earlier in The Houston Chronicle.)

Texas A&M has fired head coach Mike Sherman just a week after president R. Bowen Loftin gave him a vote of confidence.  Of course, a heartbreaking loss to hated Texas played out between then and now and that defeat clearly served as the straw that broke Reveille’s back.   The Aggies finished 6-6 despite preseason predictions for a Top 10 season.

Ole Miss fans are fearful that Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart might be on A&M’s wish list — because the Rebels are looking him over, too — but we hear the Aggies might actually stay close to home to find their next coach.  Houston’s Kevin Sumlin wouldn’t have far to move.

McElwain In The Running At Colorado

According to John Henderson of The Denver Post, Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain “is in the picture” for the vacant head coaching position at Colorado.

(We’ll pause while several Alabama fans misguidedly cheer.)

Also mentioned as being in the mix are Houston’s Kevin Sumlin and Minnesota Vikings assistant Eric Bieniemy — a former Colorado player.

It has been reported that McElwain has already met with CU brass.
