The More You Know, Coaching Edition

"The More You Know" is an almost daily antidote for all Penn State faithful regarding their upcoming bout with the the Texas A&M Aggies. As Confucius says, "In order to kill you enemies, you must learn to love them"...or something like that.

The More You Know, It's Back!

The More You Know, Part II
The More You Know, Part I

I bet you've heard: That Texas A&M (or aTm as their message board faithful call themselves) was one of the many schools that canned their coach this winter. His name was Dennis Franchione. This guy was upset about it:

Unlike Michigan, A&M thought it might be a good idea to fill the open position quickly. He was replaced by Mike Sherman, the OC of the Houston Texans.

You may also remember Mike from his stint as the Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers, he did well there, winning the division three years in a row. He was fired in 2006 for allowing Bubba Franks to hurt himself. He also once canceled a press conference because a cameraman forgot to turn off his cell phone. Good stuff Mike. Very 6th grade teacher of you.

Sherman was offered the $2 million salary of his predecessor but instead, somehow, managed to walk away with $1.8 million. And that's the more you know.
