"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's team finished 9-4 last year with a Cotton Bowl appearance, and it's beginning to look like the Aggies could challenge Oklahoma for next year's Big 12 Title. With 18 returning starters and a preseason Top 10 ranking, things are really clicking in Aggieland again.

Who knows how long they will stay in the Big 12 though?
