The former Texas A&M head coach is the program's top target.

UCF's search for a new head coach has begun.

With Scott Frost leaving Orlando for Nebraska, the Knights are in need of a new man to lead their football program.

According to a new report, a former SEC head coach is candidate No. 1.

Ryan Bass of CBS Tampa reports that former Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is the program's "top target."

Hiring Sumlin would be quite a pull for a program that returns a lot of talent from this year's 12-0 team.

It could be a good move for Sumlin, too.

The former Aggies' head coach could go to UCF for a season or two, have a bunch of success, and then jump at the best available Power 5 job.

Stay tuned.
