Looks Like Kevin Sumlin Is Gone...

Not a surprise or anything, but it appears that kevin Sumlin will be fired after the Texas A&M game with LSU this weekend... regardless of result...

From Bruce Feldman who caught up with an A&M staffer who was, apparently, blindsided by the initial report in the Houston Chronicle:

“It’s s----y for it to go down like this if what has been written (in the Chronicle’s report) is accurate,” the staffer said. “For our players to find out about it like this, that it doesn’t matter if we win Saturday night at LSU, it’s really s----y. It’s a huge distraction for them not to have their minds focused on the game. They’re probably saying WTF? Every one of them was recruited by Kevin Sumlin."

Brent Zwerneman over at the Chronicle has the leading candidate for replacing Sumlin as current Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher. Fisher has a $7-million buyout if he goes to another school while his internal university buyout is currently at $44-million.

Here's Sumlin's weekly press conference where he was asked by the Chronicle if he heard he was gone after Saturday...

His answer is understandable, but it's probably best if both parties go their separate ways. Kyle Field has been expanded to 102,000 capacity in recent years and the university wants to compete at the highest levels of the Ess-E-Cee.

The HQ would love to see how aTm plans on pulling this off...
