Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin believes the Aggies rivalry with Texas will happen "eventually."
"Eventually I think it will happen," Sumlin said about scheduling future games with Texas. Charlie Strong already officially endorsed the rivalry's renewal in March, so perhaps fans can begin to get cautiously optimistic about the continuation of a Thanksgiving tradition. The teams have played 118 times over 117 years. May 27 - 9:48 PM

The Texas A&M regents unanimously approved a new contract for head coach Kevin Sumlin.

The six-year contract, first reported late last month, will represent a nice raise. The deal keeps Sumlin out of the NFL for another season, and ended speculation about a flirtation between the Aggies' coach and USC. The Trojans hired Washington's Steve Sarkisian earlier this month.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Kevin Sumlin's new deal with Texas A&M keeps him at the school until 2015, at least.

The new deal "takes him off the NFL market until completion of $450 million renovation of Kyle Field in 2015," Mortensen tweeted. We are excited to see what Sumlin can do next season with a new quarterback, but expect NFL teams to continue calling regardless of the new agreement. This does mean Houston Texans fans should focus their attention on another candidate this offseason, however.

ESPN's Travis Haney heard Texas A&M was more concerned about losing head coach Kevin Sumlin to the Houston Texans than USC.

There was a lot of buzz regarding USC's interest in Sumlin, but the Aggies' head coach drew NFL interest last summer as well. Coaching contracts can be shredded at any time, so we wouldn't rule out an NFL jump, but he did agree to a new six-year deal on Saturday.

CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman reports Kevin Sumlin has "recommitted" to stay at Texas A&M as the school's head coach.

Another report later stated Sumlin and the school agreed on a new 6-year contract, and it is likely in response to college openings more than NFL ones. This could be good news for Ed Orgeron at USC, since Sumlin was likely very high on Pat Haden's list of head coaching candidates. We wouldn't be surprised if Sumlin gets major interest from NFL teams, maybe even the Houston Texans.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora notes there is plenty of "chatter" that Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is a potential fit with the Houston Texans.

La Canfora adds the Texas Longhorns could make "overtures" with Sumlin and Stanford head coach David Shaw. USC is also reportedly high on Sumlin. We expect Sumlin to move to the NFL if given a good opportunity. Reports stated he received an offer from the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason.
