Report: Kevin Sumlin Now USC’s Top Coaching Target


Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin should just head west after Johnny Manziel goes pro and becomes the next starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Los Angeles Daily News is reporting that Sumlin is the top target for USC.

Sumlin, who has won 30 games the past 2 1/2 seasons at Houston and Texas A&M, is also mentioned as a possible candidate at Texas and is one of the hottest names in coaching.

Sumlin reportedly will have to weigh the pull of the NFL as well.  Pac-12 Network analyst Rick Neuheisel believes Sumlin is ideal for USC.

“I’m hearing lot of names around the NFL, but I would say a guy like Kevin Sumlin might be the perfect choice,” Neuheisel told the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday.
