Default Sumlin agrees to 6 year deal with TAMU

So, I heard USC was better than TAMU?

It may be but the PAC12 is not better than the SEC. Did A&M get Franchione'ed AGAIN? but this time A&M will have Franchione'ed A&M.

Time will tell

I hope this removes Sumlin from the Texans HC talk.

Saw on twitter that A&M was afraid of losing him to the Texans, not USC.

Consider the sources. If true, the only good news derived from this is McNair would be considering college coaches and that would mean David Shaw and Jimbo Fisher could be in play.

USC has been pretty good under Orgeron. Wouldn't surprise me if they stick with him, especially if they beat UCLA.

Maybe... But it certainly won't be USC. That said, it's pretty dumb to say "book it" when you don't know the man, his family and his heart are at. Maybe in a year and a half A&M ups the ante even more. You never know.

Than again, maybe you're right but again it's dumb to assume "book it"!

That's my prediction. I think he is a little foolish not to "cash in" now with the up coming off season while he is one of if not the hottest name on the market for college football coaches. Hell, some are even considering him for the NFL when he has literally no experience at all, and very little as a HC of a big time program. Manziel leaves this off season and he possibly have a down year or two. Who knows. If he has a less than spectacular season or two, his popularity as a hot coaching candidate will die rather quickly just like it does with a lot of HC's. I'm actually pretty surprised that he's not cashing in while the gettin is good.

I don't have the know the man either. I can make assumptions based on history and what I've seen tons of coaches do in similar situations. Texas A&M isn't some program that HC's are dying to be at, nor is it a program that I feel like Sumlin will embrace to the point that he'll keep passing up on other gigs with higher profile jobs. Could I be wrong? Sure, but I don't see Sumlin being there pass the next two seasons.

Looks to me like Sumlin did cash in. That's what the extension is. He's just cashing in at A&M instead of USC.

Talk to me in two years. He won't be there. I heard Longhorn fans say the same thing when I told them Muschamp would leave soon if he didn't become the HC at Texas. He wasn't going to keep turning down big opportunities and he didn't. Sumlin won't either if he continues to have success. He'll just continue to build his price tag and will look for greener pastures.

Don't disagree with you. Just disagree with the assertion that he didn't use his newfound popularity to cash in.

He may not have upgraded to a better job, but he did manage to squeeze some more cash out of A&M.

I'm not sure he will be a hot commodity in two years. His goose that laid his golden egg will have been long gone and his defense stinks.

That's my issue, I believe he has a plug and play offense, and they'll find a quarterback to run the system successfully. But if he continues with the type of defense he's brought so far, and it goes back to his time at UofH, they'll be also rans.
