Kevin Sumlin to be named Texas A&M head football coach

According to the Rivals Texas A&M site, the deal to hire Kevin Sumlin as the new Aggie head football coach is all but done. It makes sense on a lot of levels given his success at Houston and his recruiting ties to the area, but I'm not sure I am totally sold on that offensive system working in the SEC. Now I know our "friend" will think me an idiot and surely is composing his own story about how Kevin Sumlin is the new Dennis Franchione Bear Bryant. Obviously only time will tell and while I'm certainly not a fan of Texas A&M, I am a fan of Kevin Sumlin after his time in Norman. So congrats to Coach Sumlin for landing by all accounts what he considered to be a dream job.

Good luck, because I think you're gonna need it coach!
