Sumlin refutes reports of accepting Texas A&M position

Despite a report by Sports Radio 610 AM stating that Texas A&M will announce Kevin Sumlin as its head coach in the next 24 hours, Sumlin continued to say that he has not and will not talk to other schools until the football season has concluded.

“I said earlier, two weeks ago, that I wasn’t going to talk to anybody, period, during the football season,” Sumlin said. “I actually said that three weeks ago. Many of the things that have been reported have now been found out to be false already. I’ve been consistent with that and that is not the case.

“I haven’t talked to anybody. I haven’t said anything to anybody.”

After Sumlin spoke, Athletics Director Mack Rhoades addresses the media.

“I continue to say that we’d much rather have a coach that everyone wants than one they don’t,” Rhoades said. “He’s done a terrific job and I like where our program is and we’ll continue to work at it.”
