Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has “recommitted” to stay with the Aggies as their head football coach with a new six-year deal.
Sumlin’s name has been tossed around as a candidate for college football openings around the country, mainly the job at USC.
The new deal between Sumlin and the Aggies will keep one of the countries more sought after coaching openings at College Station for the foreseeable future. This is obviously great news for Texas A&M and its fan base.
Texas A&M and Kevin Sumlin reached agreement on a new six-year contract, Director of Athletics Eric Hyman announced today.

In addition to USC it is likely a few NFL teams would have considered Sumlin for openings at the end of the season. Even if Johnny Manziel does not return the Aggies should be good to go going forward.
