HOUSTON – A local attorney reportedly took to social media to call for the termination of Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin.
Tony Buzbee expressed his disappointment in Sumlin in a Facebook status after the Aggies lost to UCLA in heartbreaking fashion, 45-44, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., to begin their 2017 season on the night of Sept. 3.
“Tonight, I am very disappointed and I have to say this,” says Buzbee, a member of Texas A&M’s Board of Regents. “Kevin Sumlin was out-coached tonight, which isn’t new.”
Texas A&M built a 34-point lead going toward the fourth quarter before the Bruins mounted their comeback.
Buzbee added that while Sumlin “recruits well,” the latter “can’t coach the big games, or the close games.”
“I’m only one vote on the Board of Regents but when the time comes my vote will be that Kevin Sumlin needs to GO,” says Buzbee.
He ends the post by asserting the school “can do better” without Sumlin, who came to College Station in 2012 after serving as the head football coach at the University of Houston from 2008 to 2011.
