Texas A&M Has Kevin Sumlin On Their Wish List

Houston's Kevin Sumlin is a hot commodity for his coaching services. Sumlin was previously linked to the Arizona St. Sun Devils job, but they are no longer interested. The latest school to show interest is the Texas A&M Aggies who just fired head coach MIke Sherman and according to the Statesmen's Kirk Bohl Sumlin is one of three candidates that Texas A&M is looking at be their next head coach.

Sumlin is a former Texas A&M assistant from 2001-02 where he was the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach and was promoted to the offensive coordinator job during the 2002 season. Over at the Aggie-centric blog I Am The 12th Man, they feel that Texas A&M has the players in place to run Sumlin's offense:

With quarterbacks Jameill Showers, Luke Joeckel, Johnny Manziel all returning, and Matt Davis coming in with the 2012 recruiting class, we have the quarterbacks to run this offense. With Uzoma Nwachukwu, Ryan Swope, Malcome Kennedy, Kenric McNeal, Brandal Jackson, and Nate Askew all returning, we definitely have the wide receivers to run this offense.

Houston's offense features two backs rushing for over 500 yards this season so far, and we know we have the backs returning to move the ball on the ground. Power backs like Marion Grice, Ben Malena, and Christine Michael are going to love the creases this offense creates for them to run through. With our whole offensive line coming back, we have all the pieces in place for Sumlin to come in and have his offense hit the ground running.

Having players in place to run his offense and having coached at Texas A&M could be enough to entice Sumlin to leave his stable job as Houston's head coach and move onto a bigger program.
