Mike Sherman Muses About His Time As Packers Head Coach

Mike Sherman says he's disappointed he's no longer head coach of the Green Bay Packers, but he has no regrets because he gave the job everything he had.

Sherman talked publicly Wednesday about his dismissal after six years as coach and four years with additional duties as general manager.

The man who took over those duties, Ted Thompson, fired Sherman on Monday, a day after the Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks to finish the season four-and-12, their worst record in 15 years.

Sherman says Thompson told him the firing wasn't about wins and losses and that the decision had nothing to do with coaching or loyalty issues. Sherman figures Thompson just wanted "his own guy."

During the news conference at Lambeau Field, Sherman talked about his respect for the franchise, the fans and the players. He says a moment he will never forget is when the players gave him a standing ovation as he addressed them briefly after his firing.
