Former Packers coach Mike Sherman to guide CFL team
Former Green Bay Packers coach and general manager Mike Sherman found a new coaching job, one that takes him north of the border.
Sherman was hired as the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes, a Canadian Football League team. He had worked the past three seasons as head coach at Nauset Regional High in North Eastham, Mass. His most recent job in professional football was as offensive coordinator with the Miami Dolphins in 2012 and 2013.

Sherman’s first tenure with the Packers was as tight ends coach in 1997 and 1998. After a year as the Seattle Seahawks' offensive coordinator, he was hired in 2000 to be the Packers' head coach. When Ron Wolf retired in 2001, Sherman assumed his responsibilities as general manager, a job he held until Ted Thompson was hired in 2005.
In six seasons as the Packers' head coach, Sherman led the team to a 57-39 record. It remained his only professional head coaching job, until being hired in Montreal.
