that will run through the 2016 season. The new contract makes Sherman the fourth highest paid coach in the Big 12 conference.

“Coach Sherman has done an outstanding job of directing our football program and is one of the top football coaches in the country,” A&M athletic director Bill Byrne said. “Not only has our team improved on the field, but under Coach Sherman’s direction the overall football team has embraced the values and virtues of Texas A&M University.

Sherman boasts and overall record of 19-19 in three seasons at the helm of A&M. There has been steady improvement each year however, as the Aggies were just 4-8 in year one, followed by a 6-7 campaign, and ended last season at 9-4.

Texas A&M will return 10 starters on offense and 8 on defense this season, and are expected to be a Top 10 team headed into their season-opener on September 4th against SMU.
