Kevin Sumlin named head coach of Arizona football

Kevin Sumlin named head coach of Arizona football

Arizona had been linked to Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo, but he elected to remain at Navy.

Kevin Sumlin is expected to become the new head football at the University of Arizona, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.

With the Wildcats, Sumlin will inherit a team that went 7-6 last season and has one of college football's ascendant talents in dual-threat quarterback Khalil Tate. But the early 2018 Heisman Trophy candidate should be happy with the hiring of Sumlin. Although Sumlin didn't succeed in his final years at Texas A&M - under the Aggies' standards - he did connect with his players and bring the Aggies close to contention.

If the move is finalized, Sumlin will replace Rich Rodriguez-who was let go January 2 after he became the focus of a sexual harassment claim. So it's possible Sumlin could keep Yates, who has been in Tucson for the past two years, on his staff. Denker as an analyst this past offseason.

In his debut season in 2012, he led the Aggies to their first Top 5 finish in over a half a century.

Sumlin will replace Rich Rodriguez, who was sacked earlier this month.

Prior to his time with Texas A&M, Sumlin spent three years as the head coach of Houston, taking the reigns as head coach in 2008 and leading the Cougars to a victory in the Armed Forces Bowl in his first season.
