Maybe an agreement in principle? Who knows. Definitely strange if true.

Default Re: Sumlin agrees to 6 year deal with TAMU

Mike Sherman had agreed to an extension/raise the year he was fired. I believe the terms were agreed on near the beginning of the season, but university president sat on it and had not signed the contract by the time he was fired at the end of the season. They fought over whether or not they owed him the money on the new contract, though I'm not sure what happened with that.

Anyways, if the deal isn't completed officially, I don't think Sumlin is obligated to comply with it. If A&M wants him locked down, then they need to get that paperwork fast-tracked. Unless of course they are having second thoughts about paying 5 million a year for a guy who has never won a conference championship.

Default Re: Sumlin agrees to 6 year deal with TAMU

Details of his contract from ESPN:

Quote:
A copy of the new contract was obtained by ESPN.com on Monday via an open records request. Here is a summary of the notable details:

Sumlin signed the deal on Thursday.
The new contract goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2014 and ends on Dec. 31, 2019.
Salary is $5 million annually (up from $3.1 million in the contract he signed in January after the 2012 season).
If Sumlin leaves before the end of the 2016 season (including any bowl game), he owes Texas A&M $5 million. After the 2016 season, there is no buyout on Sumlin's end.
If Texas A&M terminates the contract at any time prior to the end date, it owes Sumlin whatever salary remains from the termination date to the end of the contract. Both Sumlin's and the school's buyout must be paid within 60 days of the termination date.
The assistant coach salary pool remains the same as it was in his January contract: $3.4 million. The contract states that Sumlin and athletic director Eric Hyman will meet annually to mutually determine the salary pool and that the pool will be set at a level that can keep the Aggies competitive "with all the other top-tier SEC football programs."
Sumlin's bowl game and championship game bonuses remain the same as they were in the deal he signed in January. He gets $100,000 for making the SEC championship game or $150,000 if the Aggies win the game.
A bowl game appearance equates to a $50,000 bonus. If it's the AT&T Cotton Bowl, Capital One Bowl, Chick-Fil-A Bowl or the Outback Bowl, the bonus is $100,000. A BCS bowl appearance is $250,000 or $300,000 for a win.
Appearance in the national championship game gets Sumlin $300,000. If the Aggies win the national championship, the bonus is $400,000.
His bonus structure relating to the new College Football Playoff is essentially to be determined. The contract states that the parties "agree to negotiate in good faith with respect to a reasonable bonus structure" and that it will be "at least commensurate with other similarly situated programs for such a restructured BCS or such playoffs." This clause was in Sumlin's previous deal.
Sumlin gets $50,000 for winning the SEC coach of the year honors and $75,000 if he's named national coach of the year by the American Football Coaches Association or the Associated Press. That's also consistent with his previous deal.
The APR bonuses remain the same. An APR between 950-964 results in a $50,000 bonus, an APR of 965-974 means a $75,000 bonus and an APR of 975 or higher means a $100,000 bonus (about a third of each of those bonuses will be allocated to staff members with the rest going to Sumlin).

Default Re: Sumlin agrees to 6 year deal with TAMU

Digging up this old thread....

Sumlin just got a commitment from 5* Kyler Murray, plays at McAllen HS, the top ranked dual threat QB and a legacy commit (his pop was Kevin Murray, the old Aggie star from the 80s, career rec: 25-6-1).

This crazy recruiting should really pay off. With the monsters we're getting on defense and the offense we're putting together, we really should be in position to make a title run if Mark Snyder can make the defense even just average.

Murray's height and weight concerns me. 170 lbs and 5'10? He isn't yet 17 so it's not an immediate cause for concern, but still.

Damn. Brings back memories. Sherrill was my benchmark for coaches making halftime adjustments.

Edit: Made me go look up what Kevin Murray is up to these days. Link

#2 recruiting class
Quote:
The win for A&M is another sign that the Aggies have capitalized on the popularity of 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, the production of multiple first-round NFL draft picks and the move to the Southeastern Conference to surpass rival Texas for in-state talent.

The Aggies now have commitments from two of the state's top three prospects in Murray and defensive tackle Daylon Mack (No. 15 recruit). They also are squarely in the mix for the top-ranked prospect in Texas, No. 12-rated Kendall Sheffield, who is a cornerback.

The state's top-ranked prospect in 2014 (No. 4 overall), defensive end Myles Garrett, also signed with Texas A&M.

The Aggies have ascended every year in the recruiting rankings under coach Kevin Sumlin, going from No. 15 in 2012 to No. 8 in 2014 and No. 4 this past year.

With Murray's pledge, the Aggies move up to No. 2 behind Alabama in the ESPN class rankings for 2015 with a group that is currently headlined by eight ESPN 300 prospects.

Height doesn't matter in college. Only in the NFL.

If the kid is anything like his daddy, he will be better than Manziel with a better arm...

Kevin Murray was a badass back in the day. I remember him and the Wrecking Crew beating Bo Jackson and Auburn in the Cotton Bowl...

This is my hope. Kyler Murray looks like a much better pocket passer right now than Manziel did in high school or his first year. His dad must have taught him well.

The Russell Wilson comparison here is much more accurate than w/ Manziel. Murray doesn't bail needlessly and from the videos I've seen looks like he prefers to extend the play and use his arms rather than his legs to beat the defense.

Daylon Mack 5* D Tackle, TAMU commit, just cancelled all his summer visits with Bama, LSU, etc. and Kemah Siverand, a 4* receiver, committed today.

Hoping to hear Malik Jefferson, Christian Kirk, and a few others put on Aggie hats soon. Good times are a'coming in Aggieland.

Ha, yeah. I watched that documentary about the Pony Express, there was, I think, an assistant coach that was talking about this LB that had committed to Texas A&M and he was trying to get to SMU.

They offered him $50,000 to come play for SMU and the LB said that was like $50,000 less what A&M had offered him....

crazy times back then

He's already going to potentially be better than Manziel who should have won back to back Heismans and left as a sophomore?

Let the kid at least play a game or two, before calling him the next Manziel or a guy that will be better. Jesus Christ, talk about over hyping the expectations on some young kid.
