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.
Along the college coaching lines, there has been plenty of chatter about Coach Sumlin as a potential fit with the Texans ...— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) November 24, 2013
And the Texas Longhorns could end up making overtures to Shaw and Sumlin as well. USC is very high on Sumlin. Plenty of options— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) November 24, 2013
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.
