The Kevin Sumlin era is over at Texas A&M.
A tenure that began with Johnny Football, a win at Alabama and standout recruiting classes ended with the inability to sustain success, especially in SEC play. Texas A&M fired Sumlin on Sunday, and he departs with a 51-26 record in six seasons.
Sumlin's firing opens up an upper-tier job in college football. Texas A&M has the resources, facilities, fan base and location to appeal to a wide range of candidates.
