Kevin Sumlin. Chris Petersen. James Franklin.
Washington's Steve Sarkisian has accepted the Southern California coaching job, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.
Texas A&M and coach Kevin Sumlin have agreed in principle to a new six-year contract that could keep him with the Aggies through 2019.
SEC fans should enjoy all the top-notch quarterbacks while they can because many of the great signal callers in the league won't be around for long.
A&M (5-2, 2-2 SEC) had a last chance, but Manziel, the Heisman Trophy winner, was sacked by Dee Ford on fourth down to secure the win.
The worst defensive performance in the history of Alabama football, at least according to the stat sheet, was no reason for Nick Saban to panic.
The last blockbuster of the summer is set in Texas.
Alabama coach Nick Saban knows it's become irrelevant whether frenetic, no-huddle offenses are what he wants college football to be.
Everything went right for No. 6 Texas A&M in last year's upset of top-ranked Alabama that helped launch Johnny Manziel's run to the Heisman Trophy.
While Alabama rests and prepares for its rematch with Johnny Football and the most anticipated game of the season, most of the other highly ranked teams will be winding their way through early season tuneups against less-than-daunting opposition on Saturday.
Johnny Manziel only played the second half of No. 7 Texas A&M's season-opener after serving a suspension for what the school called an "inadvertent" violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs.
No. 7 Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel didn't speak to the media until late November last year because of coach Kevin Sumlin's ban on freshman talking to reporters.
The real education of Johnny Football is just beginning. So he better enjoy all the clowning while he still can. He's about to learn there's no more wearying job in sports than being a marked man all the time.
Johnny Manziel won't be on the field when No. 7 Texas A&M opens the season against Rice on Saturday.
It was the only thing anyone really wanted to talk about on Tuesday when the Aggies addressed the media. The topic, however, was off limits.
"I am humbled and very appreciative of the commitment that Texas A&M has extended not only to me and my family, but to our football program overall," Sumlin said in a statement. "We have only just begun to lay the foundation for sustained, long-term success here at Texas A&M, and we will work hard every day to make this great institution and the 12th Man proud."
"We've got a couple big stages these next few weeks," Sumlin said of the Aggies, who finish the regular season at LSU and Missouri. "Performances by him and the rest of the team these next few weeks are going to impact the awards race and where we're going to be in the bowl conversation. We know that. We have to handle things one at a time."
