Former Packers coach Mike Sherman joins Canadian Football League

MONTREAL (WBAY) - Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman was named head coach of the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes on Wednesday, in hopes he can turn around a team that went 3-15 this season.

According to the Montreal Gazette, the Alouettes fired its head coach after a 3-8 start to the season. The general manager took over coaching duties, and the team's losing streak continued.

Sherman coached the Packers from 2000 to 2005. He was fired after the team had its worst season since 1988, going 4-12 after five winning seasons. In his Packers career he had 59 wins and 43 losses and took the Packers to the playoffs in four of his six seasons.

Since then he's been the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator, head coach of Texas A&M, and offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins. He's been out of professional and collegiate football since 2014.
