Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin made an appearance on The Paul Finebaum Show Tuesday afternoon.

During his appearance, the Aggies' coach was asked by Finebaum about Charlie Strong's struggles at Texas. The Longhorns are off to a 1-4 start this season.

Here's his response: 

"It's really the first week, the bye week, where I've been able to look outside of what we're doing. Certainly, I've known Charlie for a long time. He's always been a really, really, really good coach and a guy who has done a marvelous job as an assistant coach, as a coordinator, as a head coach. Just because things haven't worked out in this short period of time doesn't mean they won't work out for him. He's really just getting started. There's always going to be opinions about what happens and what hasn't happened. He just needs some time to do things the way he wants to do them and we'll see what happens from there."

Texas A&M, meanwhile, is off to an incredible start. The Aggies are 5-0 and have a bye week this Saturday before hosting Alabama at Kyle Field on Oct. 17. That contest is set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T.
