Mike Sherman to be A&M's new head football coach

I'm hearing from a lot of sources, and the Dallas Morning News is sending out their Inside A&M updates saying that Mike Sherman, current offensive coordinator of the Houston Texans, will be named A&M's new head football coach.

Sherman was the OL coach at A&M bac in the '90s, leaving for UCLA for the 1994 season, and coming back in '95. After the '96 season, he was named the new offensive coordinator, but left to take the position of TE coach for the Green Bay Packers (NFL pays more money). He eventually moved from TE coach to head coach of the Packers, winning 3 NFC divisional titles there. He was also the general manager during his time as head coach.
He was fired after the Packers had a losing season, and has stuck around the NFL since then. He has done a fairly good job as the Houston Texans offensive coordinator, I'm told, but I barely pay attention to the Texans.

What will be notable about Sherman's hiring is that he may bring an all-star staff with him. Kevin Sumlin (former WR coach and offensive coordinator at A&M from 2000-2002, current co-OC at OU) is rumored to be coming as his new offensive coordinator. If this is true, I am ecstatic about this hire, b/c Sumlin is a phenomenal recruiter and coach.
Rumors on the defensive side have him looking at Johnny Holland and Bill Johnson as DC; either one will be fine with me.

While Sherman's hiring isn't a "wow" hire, I think it can be a solid hire if he brings in the right staff.
