New Mack Rhoades Contract Rules Out Texas A&M AD Candidate?

Mack Rhoades is probably one of the most appealing candidates when considering who will succeed Bill Byrne as athletic director at Texas A&M. Just one problem: he may or may not actually be available.

Rhoades signed a five-year contract extension with the University of Houston in January. Although the deal isn't public, sources told the Houston Chronicle that it is worth up to $500,000 per year, plus incentives. Texas A&M will have to convince Rhoades that a move would benefit him both monetarily and in terms of the fact that Rhoades has had success at Houston and may not be willing to move on to the well-established now-SEC school.

Rhoades is a candidate to replace Byrne, but said in a statement that he has not looked into leaving his current job for any other position at another school.
