Sumlin unphased by rumors that 2017 could be his last season at A&M

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- Things aren't going well for the Aggies and Head Coach Kevin Sumlin's future is on the line.

This past spring Texas A&M Director of Athletics Scott Woodward said publicly that 'coach knows he has to win'.

After beating Florida in Gainesville, the Aggies were 5 and 2 and nationally ranked, but losses to Mississippi State and last weekend to Auburn has lots of fans wondering if Coach Sumlin will return in 2018.

The subject was obviously a topic of discussion at his weekly press conference as well as snapping a two game losing streak as the Aggies prepare to face New Mexico in Texas A&M's final home game of the season.

Sumlin said that he has not visited with Woodward this week, but that the two usually talk later in the week once the team's injury situation has shaken out.

As for the speculation about his future at A&M and recent criticism he said he has a job to do and doesn't let those outside distractions affect the preparation for New Mexico.

"That doesn't change how you do things. It's never changed anything I've done," said Texas A&M Head Football Coach Kevin Sumlin. "Since I was a graduate assistant you understand what this is about from day one. You know what you signed up for," concluded the 6 year Aggie head coach.

The Aggies are looking to snap a 3 game Kyle Field losing streak and become bowl eligible for the 9th straight season.
