Kevin Sumlin coaching rumors: Houston Texans reportedly interested too

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas A&M head coach is rumored to be a top target for big jobs this offseason.

A new week, and a brand new batch of rumors for Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, who figures to be a top target for college and NFL teams alike this offseason after engineering two straight strong seasons for the Aggies in the SEC and one of the most powerful offenses in the nation.

Sumlin has previously been reported to be USC's "top target" for their vacant head coaching position, although the Trojans have reportedly interviewed Jack Del Rio for the position. Texas has had a successful second half of the season, but new athletic director Steve Patterson may want to make changes -- although it seems unlikely that Sumlin would be the answer. After a 2-0 start, the Texans have lost eight games in a row -- the longest losing streak in franchise history.

Sumlin posted a 35-17 record in four years at Houston, and has a 19-5 mark at Texas A&M.
