Last week, Kevin Sumlin's pool boy tweeted details about a phone conversation that the Texas A&M coach about his next defensive coordinator. Sumlin responded to the tweet saying that he was fired, and many assumed that it was a joke. Unfortunately for the pool boy, it wasn't.

Sumlin was on Mike & Mike this morning, and confirmed that he was indeed talking to new A&M coordinator John Chavis at the time, and that he did fire the pool boy.
