The contract is now public record and the numbers are available for all to see. Kevin Sumlin’s new contract at Texas A&M isn’t quite a $3.5 million deal as had been speculated, but it’s close.
Going into 2012, A&M’s coach had a contract worth $2 million per year. After an 11-2 first season in College Station, that number has been bumped to $3.1 million. But there’s also the potential bring in nearly $800,000 in bonuses.
The pact has also been extended to run through the 2017 season.
Sumlin has also been given $700,000 more dollars to dole out to his assistant coaches beginning this season.
