Who is Zac Taylor’s wife, Sarah Sherman?

One of the youngest and most promising coaches in the NFL, Zac Taylor guided the Cincinnati Bengals to the championship game last year.

Although we are well-versed in Zac’s background, Sarah Sherman Taylor, his wife, remains mostly in the dark. But Sarah’s dad has experience as an NFL head coach, so he can help out.

For six years, Mike Sherman led the Green Bay Packers as their head coach (2000-2005). During that time, he went 57–39 in wins and losses. When his daughter started dating Zac Taylor, he was the top offensive coach for the Houston Texans.

Taylor recalled his encounter with the ex-head coach of the Packers and his accompanying anxiety:

When I first met him, he was in the apartment above the main home. He’s set up his XOS coaches’ movie there. I felt as scared as a cat. I believed if I invited him to the movies, I would make a good impression on him. When he asks, “What’s your landmark at Nebraska on this play?” he is running a simple play back and forth.

My response is always “Oh, same as you [at Green Bay and Houston], the inner border of the field numbers. In that moment, I experienced intense fear. Also, he asks, “Aren’t your field numbers a little wider in college?” I knew then that I didn’t know what I was talking about. For the next 20 minutes, I was completely silent.

Why did Zac Taylor and Sarah Sherman become together?

When Zac Taylor was the quarterback and Sarah Sherman was a graduate assistant for the football team at the University of Nebraska, fate brought them together.

Taylor recalled his initial meeting with Sherman in a December 2018 interview with Sports Illustrated:

Recollecting the initial encounter with her. At Nebraska, we were on our soccer field getting in some practise. At the conclusion of practise, a girl in a bright yellow outfit was there to greet everyone. I would have guessed she was at least 30 by the way she looked now. I’m only 22 years old. It became out that we had the same birthday as the year progressed. My chances of seeing her increased, and I began to think that maybe I had a shot with her.

Sherman gave her account, saying, “Whenever I was at a fan day and he was the last one there, I always felt such admiration for him. He had to autograph every kid’s stuff despite being the starting quarterback. I guess you could say I stalked him until he finally asked me out on a date. Thankfully, he did.

Sarah spoke about the highs and lows of her marriage to Zac Taylor in an interview in January.

Some very low points, indeed. I knew we would succeed, but it’s tough to see a man you care about put in as much effort as he is. I had no idea we’d be able to move so quickly, so I have to say, I’m quite proud of him.
Coach Marvin Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals and his wife have four children: boys Brooks and Luke and girls Emma and Milly.
