Kevin Sumlin has been relieved of his duties at Texas A&M University

Texas A&M made official the firing of Kevin Sumlin on Sunday afternoon.

As of Sunday afternoon Kevin Sumlin has been relieved of his duties as Head Football Coach at Texas A&M University effective immediately. 

During his six seasons at A&M, Coach Sumlin was named SEC Coach of the Year in 2012 and secured an 11-2 overall record during his first season. He had an overall record of 51-26 with a 25-23 record in the SEC. However, since his initial season the Aggies have failed to record double digit wins. 

"Our expectations at A&M are very high," said Scott Woodward, the Texas A&M University Director of Athletics. 

"We believe that we should compete for SEC championships on an annual basis. I believe that we need a new coach to take us there."

Following his termination, Texas A&M will honor the terms of Sumlin's contract.
