Chris Petersen, Kevin Sumlin On Texas A&M's Coaching List, According To Report

As the Texas A&M Aggies search for a replacement for recently fired football coach Mike Sherman, The Statesmen's Kirk Bohl tweeted a short list of early candidates to pick up Sherman's mantle in College Station. 

Top three Aggie targets early: Kevin Sumlin, Charlie Strong, Chris Petersen.

Kevin Sumlin is already in the middle of his own quagmire between him, Houston and Arizona State, though coaching in the SEC with A&M next season will likely be more lucrative to him than the Pac-12 and ASU. Louisville's Charlie Strong is being named as a candidate elsewhere as well, though like Sumlin would benefit from the money and recognition that comes along with the SEC.

As for Boise State's Chris Peterson, he certainly has seemed comfortable up in Idaho, though is also being tied to the UCLA coaching vacancy as well and simply may be too hard to pull in. All these men would be a nice addition to the Aggies squad, though it should be interesting how all these head coach openings pan out moving forward.
