The school has yet to decide on an interim coach for the Aggies (6-6, 4-5 Big 12), who are eligible to play in a bowl game, Byrne said in a statement announcing the decision.
Sherman was 25-25 in four seasons. He was hired at the end of the 2007 season, three days after Dennis Franchione resigned.
Sherman's best and only winning season came last year when the Aggies won their last six regular-season games and lost in the Cotton Bowl to finish 9-4.
Texas A&M is moving from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference next year.
Sherman was coach of the Green Bay Packers for six seasons, serving as general manager for four of those seasons. He also worked as an offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks.
Byrne said Sherman had run the football program with "the highest levels of character and integrity" in four seasons and put the welfare of student-athletes first.
