Sources close to Texas A&M have confirmed that Mike Sherman has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Aggies.
Sherman took over a program in shambles from Dennis Franchione four seasons ago and slowly rebuilt the program with an emphasis on offense. The team looked to have turned the corner in 2010 when the team finished with six straight regular season wins and tied for the Big 12 South title.
With 18 returning starters, the Aggies were picked to battle preseason No.1 Oklahoma for the Big 12 Championship. But high profile second half breakdowns to Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Kansas State, and Texas left Aggie fans in a foul mood heading to the SEC. The 6-6 record appears to have cost him his job.
Sources also indicate that Texas A&M has identified two candidates and that the school has a tentative agreement with one of the finalists.
Sources told Aggie Websider that the two finalists appear to be ESPN analyst Jon Gruden and University of Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin.
