Sumlin grew up in the midwest and has no real ties to A&M.
His name has been floated as a possible NFL head coaching target and he has long said that that is his ultimate goal.
His coaching background shows a guy willing to move frequently, even laterally when the opening was at a more prestigeous employer.
If A&M values continuity to futureproof their new found relevance on the national college football stage, if they think that Sumlin is a danger to move to the NFL, if A&M wanted to give Chad a chance to grow into the role of head coach at A&M, then it would make sense.
These set of circumstances worries me more than any that were floated previously. That's all I'm saying.
