Multiple sources are reporting that Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin will be fired after the LSU game. Per The Houston Chronicle:
quote:

COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin will be fired following the Aggies' regular-season finale at LSU on Saturday night, multiple people with knowledge of the situation said.

Sumlin is expected to be dismissed in the day or days following the A&M game against the Tigers. The Aggies are a double-digit underdog to the Tigers, and an A&M victory wouldn't save his job at this point, the sources said.
Many believe that the University will pursue Florida State's Jimbo Fisher to be his replacement.
quote:

The Aggies' top target is Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, according to people with knowledge of the school's plans. Fisher won a national title following the 2013 season with the Seminoles, but FSU is 4-6 so far this season, easily his worst showing in eight years as head coach in Tallahassee, Fla. He's won at least 10 games in a season six times at FSU, something Sumlin has managed once at A&M in six seasons.
This situation should sound very familiar to LSU fans...

An ideal day or 2 after eating the big bird. Bama could somehow get whipped by Auburn and the Tigers throttle or just beat the Faggies. In that order. A Bama loss could potentially knock the tide out of the playoffs if Homa and Consin keep winning. Miami and Clemson winner is in. Nothing would make my holidays more special than a Bama loss or plane crash

I love all these LSU fans talk crap about Jimbo Fisher being garbage. Sounds a lot like sour grapes after CJF turned down working under that used car salesman, aka Joe Alleva!

A&M truly is a sleeping giant make no mistake about that. I was hoping they would keep Sumlin there for a few more seasons. The right coach/recruiter at Texas A&M would-will make the rest of us use more profanity on Saturdays. This hire is big for the other 13 schools in our conference.

LSU will look like Second-Tier U when Jimbo goes to ATM. Damn this is not good.

Jimbo and all his problems can go to A&M. He is a loser and it is starting to show. LSU will continue to dominate A&M whether Jimbo "Bubble Screen" Fisher goes there ot not. Sumlin and Fisher are about the same caliber of coach. This isn't the ACC. Lol.

Sounds like the Sexton shuffle is starting already. Jimbo going to get a raise in a down year. I wonder if Sexton can get little Nicky a raise out of aTm too?

This sounds familiar...I guess A&M wins and saves Summlins' job...for a few more games next year.

dude. just have the players carry you out, say they love you, and you're golden. they'll give you and your buddies a raise and you'll make it to game 4 next year. for sure.

This is laughable. Why would Jimbo Fisher leave FSU for A&M? They are not an elite program and never have been. I still don’t know how they got into the SEC. I can’t see another coach doing any better than Sumlin has done, given what little he has to work with. His biggest mistake was hiring Chavis and his prevent defense. So glad we got rid of him.

A sleeping giant, Austin? Really? You must have some inside information that we don’t.

Sleeping giant? More like comatose. People have been talking up A&M just like you are doing for years with nothing to substantiate the claim. Go back and look at A&M's history in the Big 12. Then come back and build that bunch of losers up. It is a joke.

Maybe we can get chief back

We upgraded when Chavis left. Idiot.

I assume by "expected to fire" he meant "expected to give extension to"

Dimbo Fisher is a myth people. Always has been, always will be. I'd be very surprised to see DF want to compete in the SEC west. What Miami and Clemson getting too tough for you??? What a loser.
