Texas A&M Football Loses Coach To Oakland

It's pretty cool that the new Oakland Raiders coach is a former Texas A&M football player. It's not cool that he's started poaching coaches off new Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin's staff.

That's just what happened this week when Dennis Allen and the Raiders hired defensive line coach Terrell Williams to fill the same post in Oakland.

Not only does this put a crimp in Sumlin's coaching staff plans, since he though he was finished filling it out, but it also hurts the Aggies on the recruiting trail. Williams was a valuable member of the Aggie recruiting effort who was a big reason why they landed so many high-profile recruits along the defensive line this season.

↵

In moving to the SEC, the Aggies will need a big defensive line to withstand those athletes, so Sumlin's replacement hire will have to be a good one. I have faith in him so far, since he's done a good job of hiring a solid staff. Plus, Sumlin is a solid recruiter himself.
