Kevin Sumlin Subject Of 'Proactive' Houston Cougars Strategy

Houston Cougars coach Kevin Sumlin -- presently preoccupied with the Conference USA Championship Game -- has been heavily linked with the Texas A&M Aggies job after being heavily linked with the Arizona St. Sun Devils job. He's a coveted property, no matter who's doing the coveting.

As the Associated Press puts it, Houston athletics director Mack Rhoades "says he'll be 'proactive' in making Sumlin understand how much he's valued by the university."

Enhanced compensation is in Sumlin's immediate future, whether UH is able to pony up sufficiently or not. A&M's pending SEC riches likely mean they can offer anything the Cougars can and then some, even with their various other budget concerns. TAMU is a bigger and better job in a familiar region and one to which Sumlin already has working experience ties.
