Report: Texas A&M to fire Kevin Sumlin after LSU game, already has top target in mind
It’s no secret that the Kevin Sumlin era is likely coming to an end after this season at Texas A&M.
However, now a report has surfaced detailing a timetable for the likely decision, according to Houston Chronicle reporter Brent Zwerneman.
According to the report, Sumlin will be fired in the days after Saturday’s LSU game, even if the Aggies manage to pull off the road upset:
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.
The report goes on to state that the Aggies have their top target in mind, and will look to Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher after firing Sumlin:
The Aggies’ top target is Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, according to people with knowledge of the school’s plans.
Whether or not Fisher is even interested in the Texas A&M job remains to be seen, but the Aggies will aim high for their new coach.
