Default Could Texans compete with USC for Kevin Sumlin ?

Quote:
COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is a top target of Southern California, the Los Angeles Daily News wrote this morning. Sumlin addressed the early USC rumors more than a month ago by saying, “It means you’re winning and doing things the right way.”

In early October Sumlin, 49, said it comes down to being one of two types of coaches: When rumors abound you’re going be fired, or hired by someone else. Sumlin also told me in the offseason regarding stories that he’d been courted by the NFL, “We just got here” in terms of getting the Aggies program rolling.

A&M finished fifth last year – its first top five finish since 1956 – in only his first season at A&M. The Aggies are 7-2 so far this season with narrow losses to Alabama (49-42) and Auburn (45-41). Privately, Sumlin’s offered every indication he’d love to stay at A&M, where he once served as an offensive coordinator under R.C. Slocum, but he did tell me over the summer he might consider the NFL “someday.”

And the job I’d keep an eye on regarding that is the Houston Texans, should Gary Kubiak retire or not be brought back. Sumlin, who’s held in high regard by the Texans brass, is extremely familiar with that organization, having served as the Houston Cougars’ head coach from 2008-11. And uprooting his children from Aggieland to Houston, where they lived before, wouldn’t be as big a deal as moving elsewhere.

Can you imagine what would happen if we hired Sumlin and then they draft Manziel in the 1st? I think this forum would explode.

Oh wait, same thing. "Explode". Never mind.

Hire Sumlin and no need to draft QB, go all defense in the draft and problems solved! Pop champagne next year.

Default Re: Could Texans compete with USC for Kevin Sumlin ?

I would be cautiously optimistic of Sumlin as I would anyone else. I think a well respected college coach could do well with Texans and a local boy would probably bring a couple years of patience from fans. I think he would be very happy with Keenum.

Based on how bad the Texas A&M defense has played I'm not so sure I am sold on Sumlin. And I think the Texas A&M offense is more to do with Johnny Manziel than it is does Kevin Sumlin. Some team could get Franchioneed here. Think back to TCU, LaDainian Tomlinson and Dennis Franchione. Alabama and Texas A&M got Franchioneed.

If BoB hires Sumlin I'm done.

Sumlin has never won a confrence championship and always loses 1-2 games a yr that he shouldn't lose, both at UH and A&M.

If BoB hires Sumlin it will obviously be to appease the Aggie fans after Gary is fired. 8 yrs of Aggie leadership/Mediocrity is enough.

Sumlin during the press conferences when asked about JFF's bad habits seemed to struggle to put a sentence together. I am not impressed. Doesn't seem all that bright to me.

Default Re: Could Texans compete with USC for Kevin Sumlin ?

Sumlin has no experience in the NFL, iirc. I would not want a head coach that has absolutely no NFL pedigree.

We've seen great college coaches chewed up and spit out by the NFL too many times. For every Jimmy Johnson you have Steve Spurrier, Nick Saban, Bobby Petrino, Dennis Erickson, etc.

Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh do not count, as they had NFL experience as player or coach before their current teams.

No if for no other reason than I am freaking tired of hearing people piss and moan about Aggies, Aggies attending games, drafting because they are Aggies, etc.

Says an Aggie? USC is considered a much better/more prestigious job and likely carries a much bigger salary.

No doubt. We've had the Fresno Mafia and the Bevo Homers invade the board in the past, and their undying loyalty toward an individual player over team has taught us the limits of their 'devotion' to the Houston Texans.

I think it would result in Twilight levels of fanboyism. You would have Team JFF vs Team CK, and it would be hilarious. Probably terrible for the team, but it would be amusing.

The money, prestige, recruiting potential and loation are all better at USC and UT, but other than that, it's pretty much a lateral move.

Unless you mean geographically, then yeah LA is only a couple degrees north of CS.
