Sumlin gets new contract at Texas A&M

Texas A&M and head football coach Kevin Sumlin have agreed to a new contract.

Terms of the six-year deal were not released, though it will keep Sumlin in College Station for an addition two years through the 2019 campaign.

Prior to Saturday's game at Missouri, Sumlin has guided the Aggies to 19 wins in his first two years at the helm for the best start ever by a Texas A&M head coach.

"Coach Sumlin has demonstrated why he is considered among the nation's elite football coaches. His coaching and recruiting abilities are only secondary to his integrity, class and passion for his student-athletes and this university," Texas A&M athletics director Eric Hyman said.

Sumlin, and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, led the Aggies to a record of 11-2 last season, which included a 41-13 Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma.
