Coach Kevin Sumlin, head football coach of the Texas A&M Aggies is going to be receiving a nice raise and contract extension based on how well his team performed this year according to Dallas Morning News . Exceeding expectations, the Aggies went 11-2 including a victory over eventual national champion Alabama and a more than convincing victory over former Big XII foe Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl. Not to mention also coaching the first freshman to ever win the Heisman in Johnny Manziel. With the amount of success Sumlin has had in his first year at A&M in their first year in the SEC, I’m sure Aggie faithful know that kind of success will get money thrown at him from plenty of other suitors.
According to College Football Insider Joe Schad the deal is 5 years and pending approval of Board of Regents of A&M who will meet on Feb 1st.

With all the nonsense that is going on with the lack of minority hires in the NFL, its good to see guys like Sumlin being taken care of on account of their success.

What’s a week in January 2013 without talking about the activities of one Johnny Manziel? A municipal judge in Ennis, Texas, the dishonorable Lee Johnson, apparently tattled on the Texas A&M Aggies star quarterback. He didn’t tip of a newspaper, a TV station, or ESPN, no, he went on Facebook and gave what can only be described as a not so cryptic message. For what it is worth...
Oklahoma Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops had some pretty telling comments about Johnny Manziel after he won the Heisman Trophy.
“They’re gonna be tough to deal with. If they can keep him out of jail or keep him eligible, he’s gonna be pretty good,” Stoops said.
“If they can keep him off the Twitter, he might win three or four Heismans. He’ll have that type...
