Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin not only walked away from a chance to be the next USC coach but also is declining all requests to interview for NFL head coaching jobs. Sumlin will honor a unique 6-year, $30 million contract with the Aggies he signed Nov. 30, according to several sources.
An NFL source insists Sumlin is open to coaching a select professional team or two, but a source close to Sumlin said, "That's 100 percent not true and it has no chance of happening. Zero."
Sumlin has passed on several inquiries and job opportunities from all NFL and high-profile collegiate jobs, including USC, sources said.
