Mike Sherman is once again out of a job.
The former Green Bay Packers head coach went 5-13 in his first season as head coach of the Montreal Alouettes. It would not extend further than that as the Canadian Football Franchise decided to part ways with him just days before their first regular season game.
“We would like to thank Mike Sherman for his hard work and dedication with our team,” said Alouettes General Manager Kavis Reed. “We would have preferred a different turn of events, but we believe that we are making this decision with the best interest of our organization and our team in mind. We had identified some key elements from last year where we wanted to see some changes, but unfortunately, these adjustments did not materialize. These decisions are never easy to take, but we believe that this is the right one to make.”
His best memory from his first year with the team was obviously him trading for Johnny Manziel, whom Sherman had recruited to Texas A&M.
Despite his success with the Packers, Sherman could never get over the hump and put the team in a position to play in an NFC Championship Game and was promptly fired after going 4-12 in his sixth season in 2005.
