Mike Sherman        

Michael Francis Sherman (born December 19, 1954 in Norwood, Massachusetts) is an American football coach and former general manager who was until recently the head coach of the Green Bay Packers of the NFL, a position he held from the 2000 season to the 2

Prior to assuming head coaching duties for the Packers, Sherman had also been the team's tight ends coach, as well as offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks and offensive line coach for Texas A&M University at various times. In addition, he was the offensive line coach at UCLA in 1994 where he coached current Green Bay center Mike Flanagan. In 2000, when he became head coach of the Packers, Sherman had never been a head coach at any level. Some believe that his long career as an assistant may account for his notorious loyalty.

Coach Sherman has been defended by many fans as being loyal to his players and the team. A prime example of this happened in 2002, when he got into a shouting match with Warren Sapp after a block Sapp put on Chad Clifton shattered the offensive tackle's hip. Unfortunately, Sherman's loyalty may have hurt the team a couple of times, as he has gained a reputation of hiring friends of his who are NFL coaches as assistants, regardless of their coaching ability.

In his six year head coaching career with the Packers, Sherman compiled a 57-39 regular season record and a 2-4 postseason record. In a controversial decision by Packers general manager Ted Thompson, he was fired on January 2, 2006, after the Packers went 4-12 in the 2005 season. He signed with the Houston Texans as an assistant head coach on February 15.
