EASTHAM (CBSMiami/AP) — A former Miami Dolphins coordinator is going back to his coaching roots.

Former Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman has agreed to coach at Nauset Regional High School on Cape Cod.

Nauset athletic director Keith Kenyon confirmed to the Cape Cod Times that Sherman will replace him on the Warriors’ sideline this fall.

Sherman is a Massachusetts native who currently lives in Dennis on Cape Cod.

After he was let go as the Miami Dolphins’ offensive coordinator he spent the last year on the Cape, doing occasional consulting work for the NFL and college teams.

Sherman tells the newspaper that he took the high school job because he didn’t want to put his family through another move.

He says he is financially secure and missed coaching last season.

Nauset, in Eastham, draws students from six towns.
