Sherman Looking Forward To Coaching Aggies

By  | 

KANSAS CITY, MO -- First year Texas A&M Head Football Coach Mike Sherman addressed the media Monday afternoon during the opening days of the Big 12 Football Media Days.

Sherman said he has been asked a lot why he left the NFL to coach again on the collegiate level and the reason he said had everything to do with Texas A&M.

Sherman added he has a fair amount of familiarity with the program dating back to two separate coaching stints there as well as he knows the landscape very well.

Not to mention that it's as similar as he could find to Green Bay, Wisconsin. "When you come into work everyday the expectations are very high, and the fans are very passionate."

Jorvorski Lane's playing weight was again a topic of discussion. Sherman says that Lane has been moved to fullback and he thinks Jorvorski will play a lot more effectively in the 260's, which is a number the two agreed on earlier this year.

Sherman probably hasn't done an interview since taking over for Dennis Franchione where he hasn't been asked about the quarterback position.

"I've said this many times, I don't think you have controversy when you have good talent at that position. If we didn't have good talent at that position then we would have a controversy," said Sherman.

"I have confidence that we're going to have a very good quarterback when we start the season. I think he'll play at a higher level because of the competition," added Sherman.

We'll have more from Mike Sherman and the Aggie players attending Big 12 Media Days in Kansas City, coming up tonight at 10 on News 3 Sports.
