The Texas A&M Aggies are the latest team looking for a head coach. The school announced they have fired Kevin Sumlin as their head football coach.

Sumlin, who has known for about a week that he was going to be let go, guided his team to a 7-5 record this season. He was 51-26 in the past six seasons at the school.

The Aggies lost 45-21 to No. 18 LSU Tigers on Saturday.

With this move, the Aggies will be the fourth known team looking for a new head coach in the Southeastern Conference. The Arkansas Razorbacks, Ole Miss Rebels, and the Florida Gators are looking for a coach.

The Gators may have found it’s next head coach in Dan Mullen, who they’re reportedly finalizing a deal for him to return to Gainesville, Florida, where he previously coached before going to Starkville, Mississippi. That would then make it four head coaching openings once again as then the Mississippi State job will open up.

Jeff Banks, the special teams’ coordinator, had been named interim head coach. The Aggies have already expressed interest in hiring Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher, who had a down year with the Seminoles, refused over ventures from the LSU Tigers in recent years. Will he do the same with Texas A&M? We’ll have to see.

“No matter who you are or what you do, you’re able to live with yourself if you leave something better than it was when you got there,” Sumlin said Saturday night.
