Kevin Sumlin has been on the hot seat before as being the Texas A&M Aggies football head coach. Yet, despite the rumors, he continued to keep his job.
Once again, Sumlin is dealing with the rumors that he could be on the way out – but this time, it could be for real. The Aggies were defeated 42-27 to the No. 15 Auburn Tigers on Saturday.
The Aggies had just 13 first downs in the game. They had 343 offensive yards – but they really looked awful in the game.

Sumlin has been the Aggies head coach since 2012. The team is 5-4 this season.
In his six-years at the school, he has had a 49-25 record. He hasn’t finished better than second in the Southeastern Conference in his coaching career at the school.
They finished tied for second in the Western Division of the SEC in 2012.
The Aggies have not defeated an SEC West opponent at home in 763 days. They haven’t won a home game against an SEC West opponent at Kyle Field since Oct. 3, 2015 when they won 30-17 over the then-No. 21 Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Sumlin has also lost the past two bowl games that the school has played in.

When and if Sumlin is fired, the Aggies will be one of several major programs, who will be looking for head coaches at the end of this season. The Tennessee Volunteers are also expected to fire Butch Jones.
The Florida Gators, who fired Jim McElwain a week ago, also will be in the mix for a new head coach.
