Kevin Sumlin has done his best to end the speculation that he is out there waiting to go to the NFL. According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Aggies’ head coach is going to stay in College Station and see that new investment in the stadium get built.
It has been popular to assume that A&M is not a great job and that Sumlin would leave for any number of jobs throughout this process, but considering what he has been able to build there, their place in the state of Texas and their presence in the SEC, he might just have just helped to create one of the most lucrative and powerful jobs in the country.
This announcement comes on the heels of the fact that the Aggies play the Duke Blue Devils in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl later today at 8pm on ESPN. There will be a palpable level of excitement in Aggieland as they hope to get a win tonight in what could be Johnny Manziel’s last collegiate game and see what Sumlin can do next.
