Texas A&M's Sumlin to Get a Raise, Extension 1/20/13
January 20, 2013
COLLEGE STATION - Texas A and M has agreed in principle to give
coach Kevin Sumlin a contract extension and a raise after he led the Aggies to
11 wins in his first season with the team.
Sumlin, who was hired from Houston after Mike Sherman was fired, recently
completed the first year of a five-year contract worth $2 million a year.
Terms of the deal weren't released pending approval from the Texas A and M
Board of Regents on February 1st.
Sumlin's staff will also get raises under the new deal.
Sumlin and Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel led the Aggies to
their highest final ranking since 1956 at Number 5. They finished 11-2 for the
fourth 11-win season in school history, one year after going 7-6.
