A&M May Hire Sumlin to be Head Coach

Texas A&M has fired head football coach Mike Sherman.  This means the Aggies will go into the Southeastern Conference next year with a new coach, who, if the rumors come true, might be the current coach at the University of Houston — Kevin Sumlin.

Mike Sherman leaves Aggieland after only four seasons, and a record of 25 wins against 25 losses. His dismissal came a week after the Aggies lost to Texas 27-25 on a last-second field goal at Kyle Field, in the last scheduled meeting of the rivals.

A&M entered its most anticipated season this century with 18 returning starters from a 9-4 team, and was ranked seventh nationally before blowing five large leads en route to a 6-6 regular-season finish.

Anger among Aggies grew more intense after the stunning loss to UT on A&M’s home field, which was the last straw for the regents and powerful Aggie alumni.

He’s outta there.

The ink on Sherman’s dismissal papers isn’t dry, and there are rumors that the Aggies may try to hire Kevin Sumlin away from the University of Houston.

The Cougars are undefeated at 12-0, ranked 6th in the BCS standings, and in line for a BCS bowl for the first time.

Sumlin has turned the Cougars into one of best teams in the country, and QB Case Keenum is a serious candidate for the Heisman Trophy.

At least one well known Houston sports writer is stoking the rumors and promoting Sumlin for the Aggie job.
