Report: Sumlin spurning NFL overtures to remain at A&M

If one report is accurate, Texas A&M won’t have to worry about losing its head coach to the professional ranks.  At least, not this year they won’t.

Citing a source close to Kevin Sumlin, ESPN‘s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Aggies head coach will remain at the school after rebuffing overtures from multiple NFL clubs.  Not only that, the source stated, but Sumlin has also declined to even interview for any professional vacancies.

From Mortensen’s report:

An NFL source insists Sumlin is open to coaching a select professional team or two, but a source close to Sumlin said, “That’s 100 percent not true and it has no chance of happening. Zero.”

As for the NFL, sources say professional football will have to wait until January 2016 before Sumlin will be open for business, if he so chooses.

Late last month, Sumlin reached an agreement on a hefty new contract, which came shortly after his name was mentioned in connection to the USC opening.  Various rumors and speculation had also connected him to, among others, the Houston Texans, a job that came open earlier in the 2013 regular season.

    That’s the obvious answer TODAY… Now tomorrow, after the bowl game, might he take an NFL interview?

    I hope he stays on until at least 2015, because I really feel that’s the year to really look out for the Aggies but who knows.

    He’s probably waiting for Garrett to get fired in Dallas next year after the Cowboys miss the playoff again.
