COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M has agreed in principle to give coach Kevin Sumlin a contract extension and a raise after he led the Aggies to 11 wins in his first season with the team.
Sumlin, who was hired from Houston after Mike Sherman was fired, recently completed the first year of a five-year contract worth $2 million a year.
Terms of the deal weren't released pending approval from the Texas A&M Board of Regents on Feb. 1.
Sumlin's staff will also get raises under the new deal.
Sumlin and Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel led the Aggies to their highest final ranking since 1956 at No. 5. They finished 11-2 for the fourth 11-win season in school history, one year after going 7-6.
