New A&M Coach Caught Sleeping on the Job

That fella sleeping at the NFL scouting combine is Mike Sherman, assistant head coach/offensive coordinator of the Houston Texans. Presumably he'll be awake Monday morning, because he's going to be introduced as Texas A&M's new coach.

We don't make this stuff up.

It's now clear why Auburn's Tommy Tuberville was saying last weekend that he wanted to stay at Auburn. He had no choice. A&M wasn't interested in paying a $6 million buyout clause in Tuberville's contract.

Sherman's ties to Texas A&M? He was an assistant with the Aggies, serving as the offensive line coach from 1989-93 and 1995-96 under R.C. Slocum. He went on to coach the Green Bay Packers and was fired in 2005 after a 4-12 season.
