Latest Coach Search Update - Wednesday

Aggie Websider's David Sandhop has the very latest on the Texas A&M football coaching search.

Larry Fedora, who grew up in College Station and has family still in the area, did not receive a Texas A&M offer this morning to become the new Aggie coach. Thus, he couldn't wait any longer and unconditionally accepted the job at North Carolina earlier today.

The presumed leading candidate still remains University of Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin. With that said, sources close to both Sumlin and Texas A&M indicate that Sumlin has not been officially offered the job in College Station either.

Sources have indicated to Aggie Websider late Wednesday afternoon that Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne and the search committee are still negotiating with a high profile head coach and making one more run at the unnamed candidate. Speculation throughout the week has pointed to targets such as Boise State's Chris Petersen, Oregon's Chip Kelly, and Georgia's Mark Richt.

According to Aggie Websider sources, Texas A&M was close to consummating a deal earlier today but the candidate had some family concerns and is still working through those issues tonight before giving Texas A&M a final decision.
