Taylor’s wife, Sherman, is no stranger to the stress and struggles of living with an NFL coach. According to FanBuzz, she is the daughter of a former coach. Her father, Mike Sherman, has a long history of working as a football coach. He started at the high school level before making his way up to a college coach, where he manned the teams at big football schools like Texas A&M and UCLA, just to name a few. He would go on to become an NFL coach, calling the shots for Green Bay Packers in 2000.
For Taylor, meeting his father-in-law was a bit intimidating. He told Sports Illustrated, “The first time I met [Mike], he was upstairs in his house,” he shared, “He has his XOS coaches film set up there. I was as intimidated as can be. I figured, I can impress him by watching film with him.” However, the viewing didn’t go as planned. He asked him some simple football questions, but Taylor wasn’t following.
Taylor wrapped up the story by saying, “At that moment I realized I had no idea what I was talking about. That was our first real conversation. He was throwing me a bone on something simple about football and I failed.”
