Reports - Texas A&M May Have a Coach

Reports are surfacing that Texas A&M has offered their vacant head coaching position to Kevin Sumlin who is expected to accept the position.

Reports are surfacing late Friday night that University of Houston coach Kevin Sumlin was offered the head coaching job at Texas A&M and is expected to accept the position.

In addition to his successful four year run at Houston that culminated in a 11-1 record in 2011 that caught the attention of the Aggies along with Arizona State, UCLA, and Illinois, Sumlin also has extensive assistant coaching experience at Purdue, Minnesota, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma.

This will be Sumlin's second tour of duty with the Aggies who coached wide receivers under R.C. Slocum a decade ago. With a sputtering offense rated near the bottom of the NCAA standings, Slocum shuffled his staff and inserted Sumlin as the OC for the remainder of the season. Under Sumlin, Texas A&M's offense significantly improved its production and upped its per game average by over 20 points.

An official announcement is expected later this weekend with a press conference to follow.
