Sherman To Comment Wednesday On Firing

Mike Sherman isn't commenting yet on his firing as coach of the Green Bay Packers.

But the team says he'll be available to news media at 11:00 a-m Wednesday at Lambeau Field.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson fired Sherman Monday, and says it wasn't because of the team's disappointing four-and-12 record.

Thompson says he simply didn't think Sherman was the right person to carry the team into the future -- one that might not include Brett Favre.

Thompson says he hasn't discussed the decision with Favre. The three-time M-V-P is mulling retirement and has said he might be less willing to return if he had to learn a new offensive system and a new coaching staff.
