Would Nebraska Consider Going After Kevin Sumlin?

The Texas A&M head coach might be ready to move on.

Kevin Sumlin off to the kind of start he needed to have to keep his job at Texas A&M. The Aggies are 5-2. It was believed by most than Sumlin needed, maybe, 9-plus wins this season to stay in College Station after his AD publicly put him on the hot seat this summer.

What if Sumlin just decides to leave Texas A&M on his own, though?

There's a growing sentiment among the college football world that, if he's not fired, Sumlin will leave for the best opportunity out there.

Could that be Nebraska?

Nebraska announced the hire of a new athletic director on Sunday, plucking Bill Moos from Washington State.

The Cougars' athletic director has made big-name head coaching hires before, bringing Mike Leach to Pullman, Wash. when most didn't think he could.

Leach and UCF's Scott Frost, a former star Nebraska QB, are the two coaches mentioned most often for the Nebraska gig, which is expected to open up at some point this year.
