DeRuyter to A&M deal appears almost done

Air Force defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter is close to becoming the next defensive coordinator at Texas A&M.

TexAgs.com, an ESPN web affiliate, is reporting that the school's board of regents approved DeRuyter's hiring.

It clearly would be the biggest hire in Coach Mike Sherman's tenure at A&M.

There's still no official word from the school, but something will likely be coming later in the afternoon.
