Kevin Sumlin officially relieved of duties

Florida State's Jimbo Fisher is the favorite to replace Sumlin and reportedly has an agreement in place to become Texas A&M's head coach, according to KPRC-TV. "I wouldn't do this job if I didn't think I'd be retained", Sumlin said in response to someone asking him if he thinks he should remain in the job.

Head coach Kevin Sumlin of the Texas A&M Aggies walks across the field before the start of their game against the Ball State Cardinals at Kyle Field on September 12, 2015 in College Station, Texas.

While Sumlin found success in the win column, the trajectory at which that success occurred ultimately sealed his fate.


Postgame fallout: LSU finished 6-2 in SEC play, the first time the Tigers have won six league games in a season since 2012. However, since his initial season the Aggies have failed to record double digit wins. He had an overall record of 51-26 with a 25-23 record in the SEC. The most damning marks against Sumlin were his team's record vs. The Aggies' record against SEC West teams since Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel left school is 8-16 in the last four seasons, 16-20 overall in six seasons.

"Every year is different", Sumlin said on Saturday after the loss to LSU. Because of that, you look at trends.

The team's inability to succeed in key November games (the Aggies are 4-11 against SEC opponents in November since 2013) was also a point of contention for fans and alumni. "Obviously, our search will be quiet so the next time you'll hear from me is when I'm introducing the new head football coach". He went 8-5 in the previous three seasons before going 7-5 in 2017.
