Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin "might not be able to turn down every NFL advance over the coming years," believes NFL Media.
Sumlin's system is as entertaining as it gets, and he has shown an ability to adapt to his personnel. The NFL has already made overtures and isn't likely to stop. "You wouldn't expect a former college linebacker to be known for his offense, but that's what Sumlin's calling card is and one reason why a number of NFL clubs gauged his interest on coaching up a notch in the past few years," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "His ability to focus Johnny Manziel should be reason enough for him to be considered given those management skills." Jun 8 - 9:54 PM

Texas A&M is courting LSU DC John Chavis in the hopes of adding him in the same role, according to Ross Dellenger.

"Chavis’ intentions are not clear. LSU has offered Chavis a new contract with an extension, but it has not been signed, sources said," writes Dellenger. Texas A&M is looking for an upgrade on defense after struggling on that side of the ball for two straight seasons, albeit an improvement in 2014. The Aggies were rumored to be interested in Will Muschamp.

Texas A&M and OL coach B.J. Anderson have parted ways.

On the surface it seems like a surprising move, since Anderson coached the likes of Jake Matthews, Luke Joeckel and Cedric Ogbuehi. However, the offensive line regressed a bit this season and there have been some reports of Ogbuehi receiving a free pass in practice. A frenetic pocket mover in Johnny Manziel did not favors for his offensive line in the past, placing extra pressure on the front five to mirror for long periods of time. Still, talent remains for the present and future along the Aggies' offensive line.

Texas A&M offensive coordinator Jake Spavital said Saturday's loss to Ole Miss was the hardest game he's ever coached.

Score another vote for the idea that the Rebels have the country's best defense. "Damn," Spavital texted ESPN on Saturday. "That was the hardest game I have ever coached." Travis Haney asked if Ole Miss' defensive line was the reason. "Yeah," he said. "They schemed all our quick throws and easy completions. ... They rallied and tackled well. We couldn’t make any plays." Haney believes Ole Miss defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche could vault into Heisman consideration with a big game.

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.

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.
