Kubiak, Texans Excited About Sherman Taking Over At Texas A&M

By  | 

HOUSTON -- Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak couldn't think
of a better way for it to happen -- if he had to lose Mike Sherman
to another job.

Houston's offensive coordinator today was named head coach at
Texas A&M.

Sherman is replacing embattled Dennis Franchione, who resigned
Friday.

Sherman will finish the season with the Texans before moving
into his job with the Aggies full time.

Kubiak is a former Aggie quarterback.

Sherman, who was fired by Green Bay two seasons ago, told Texas A&M he'd only leave for a job where he thought he had "an
excellent opportunity to win."

Houston (5-6) lost 27-17 to Cleveland on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Kubiak brushed off questions about a possible
replacement for Sherman, saying he is concentrating on Sunday's
game against Tennessee.
