McMillian Thrilled To Return Home To Coach The Aggies

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- Charles McMillian was perfectly content coaching at TCU, but apparently there was somebody who once coached with Mike Sherman that felt like it was time for "Chuck" to move back home.

When Sherman was hired at Texas A&M in November of 2007, one of his former coaches who was connected to the football program at TCU, told McMillian he needed to look into getting on Sherman's staff.

But McMillian was in the middle of helping the Horn Frogs get ready to battle Houston in the Houston Bowl, and looking into another job was the furthest thing from his mind.

McMillian's said this guy kept saying, "Chuck, you deserve better. I'm going to talk to coach Sherman for ya’."

McMillian didn't figure anything would materialize and pretty much forgot about it.

"But we were down in Houston getting ready to take on Houston in the bowl game, he comes up to me and touches me right before kickoff and I have the kickoff team and he says, 'Chuck, Coach Sherman is at the game, I know this is not as important, but I talked to him,'" said McMillian.

"A week later I get a call that Coach Sherman wants to potentially interview me and possibly talk to me," ended McMillian.

McMillian said coaching in his hometown adds a certain amount of pressure, not to mention additional ticket request.

The Texas Aggies will have one more practice on Wednesday morning before a Thursday evening scrimmage. Coach Sherman has scheduled a walk through on Friday as the team gets ready for their August 30th season opener against Arkansas State.

Kick off for the home opener is set for 6 p.m.
