Sumlin says he was offered an NFL head coaching gig but turned it down


SIAP

LINK

What do y'all think? Was he joking? I find it hard to believe he was offered after just one good season in a BCS conference.

I bet Trooper was going to be his assistant if he didn't get the Cowboys gig first.

Trying to build equity with the A&M administration and boosters.

He'll need it when his current QB leaves.

Not sure why he would lie about it. I think it is probably true.

Really? I could see an Asst. gig but a HC job after one year at a big time program?

He's probably telling the truth. He probably sees the next two years as his best chance at a BCS championship and then might entertain a move later on. He's a young guy that will probably have several more coaching jobs before it's all said and done.

The same reason Trooper lied about being offered the OC job or whatever it was with the Cowboys. So he can tell naive 17 year olds that he would rather stay at aTm and coach them than take an NFL job.

I'm not saying he is lying, but there is definitely at least one good reason for it.

I have a hard time believing that in this day and age, that an NFL team could offer a major college coach like Sumlin a HC job and nobody in the media catch wind of it.

He also admitted they came in third place in the West which some Aggie fans can't seem to admit or understand.

We came in second. We were ranked higher at the end of the year. We had the same conference record. Deal. With. It.
