Remember when people thought Kevin Sumlin was an excellent coach? Those days of him having his reputation being built off the back of Johnny Manziel, however, are no more.
So much so, in fact, he’s reportedly not in the running to be new head coach of the Arizona Wildcats, despite many projecting him to be a good fit with the school.
In a column in which he’s taking educated guesses at who should be the new Zona coach, CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd dropped a stunning bombshell in a nonchalant way. According to some sources, Sumlin might not be in consideration for the gig.
Sources have indicated, for now, former Texas A&M Kevin Sumlin may not be a candidate.
There’s a few caveats Dodd dropped in the one-line report. The biggest of which is the “for now” aspect, which allows massive wiggle room for a change of heart come down the road. If other coaches neglect to show interest in the job, or more research is done to show Sumlin is a good fit, those reports can easily change.
For those unaware, Arizona fired Rich Rodriguez after some startling accusations came to light following a lawsuit filed by a former female assistant.
