Texas A&M Has Not Hired Houston's Kevin Sumlin, Aggies Will Interview Multiple Candidates

There were reports from earlier today that the Houston Cougars head coach Kevin Sumlin was to be named the new Texas A&M head coach within 24 hours. Now according to Brent Zwerneman of the Austin-American Statesman, he is reporting that no decision has been made and that there are other candidates who Texas A&M is considering:

Houston's Kevin Sumlin, Louisville's Charlie Strong and Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart are among the leading candidates early in the process, according to the insiders, following the Thursday firing of Mike Sherman.

An A&M insider said Saturday evening the process is likely to take "a few days." The push for Strong has apparently gained strength in the past day, too, especially following UH's 49-28 loss to Southern Mississippi in Saturday's Conference USA title game at Robertson Stadium.

Zwerneman also said that Texas A&M will be interviewing multiple candidates in addition to Kevin Sumlin.
