Former Green Bay Packers coach Mike Sherman has been named the new head coach at Nauset Regional in Eastham, according to a report in the Cape Cod Times.

Sherman, who was born in Norwood and now lives in Dennis, coached the Packers from 2000-05, directing them to three straight NFC North titles. He also was the head coach at Texas A&M, leading the Aggies to three bowl appearances in four seasons.

He was fired in January 2014 after two seasons as the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator. The Dolphins finished 8-8 in 2013 and were ranked 27th in offense.

According to the report, Sherman has spent the last year on the Cape, doing occasional consulting work for the NFL and college teams.


“I felt after Miami I couldn’t put my family through another move,” Sherman told the Times. “We’ve been coming here almost every summer over the last 30-plus years as a family so we felt this was a natural fit for us to call Cape Cod home.”

In the report, Sherman said he was restless without football, and said there were other coaching jobs he could have pursued.

“I’ve loved coaching in the NFL and college for the last 33 years, but I am definitely looking forward to working with the kids at Nauset,’’ he told the Times.
