College Station -- Texas A&M head football Coach Mike Sherman said Friday afternoon that he does not expect running back Mike Goodson to be back for the 2009 season.
When asked if the reason was because he would declare early for the NFL draft Sherman said it was " a combination of things."
Sherman has been meeting with his players about the past season. He said he has not met with Goodson but there is a possibility he could.
The junior from Klein Collins started seven game in the 2008 season. He led the Aggies in rushing with 406 yards and five rushing touchdowns. Goodson also recorded 37 catches for 386 yards and three touchdowns.
For his career Goodson rushed for 1,964 yards and 13 touchdowns. He had 860 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns. His best rushing season was as a freshman when he ran for 847 yards.
The Aggies finished the 2008 season 4 and 8. Texas A&M will open the 2009 season September 5 against New Mexico at Kyle Field.
