Texas A&M fires Sherman after disappointing season

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M may be playing football in the SEC in 2012, but Mike Sherman won't be making the move with them.

Sherman has been fired as the Aggies coach after they finished the regular season with a disappointing 6-6 record.

Athletic Director Bill Byrne announced the move in a statement on Thursday night.

Sherman was 25-25 in four seasons. He was hired at the end of the 2007 season, three days after Dennis Franchione resigned.

Sherman's best and only winning season came last year when the Aggies won their last six regular-season games and lost in the Cotton Bowl to finish 9-4.

Texas A&M is moving from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference next year.
