It is official.

Texas A&M has made its anticipated firing of head coach Kevin Sumlin official.

The Aggies announced the news moments ago, ending Sumlin's tenure after six seasons.

He finishes with a 51-26 mark in College Station, including three bowl wins. However, he never recaptured the magic of his first year (2012), when he led the Aggies to an 11-2 mark.

Sumlin's name has already been linked to the opening at Arizona State. Expect him to land somewhere.

Meanwhile, A&M will reportedly focus on prying Jimbo Fisher away from Florida State. If that fails, SMU's Chad Morris could get a lot of play.
