110813 Sumlin 300x225 USC Football News: Kevin Sumlin is Top Head Coaching CandidateThe USC Trojans’ football team has tabbed Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin as its top choice in next month’s expected search to fill its vacant head coaching position.

Sumlin, 49, has had success at Houston as well, guiding it and Texas A&M to 30 wins over the last 2 1/2 seasons. It has given him enough momentum to be considered for the Texas job as well, and could even draw him some interest from NFL teams.

USC has been said to have reached out to Jon Gruden and Lovie Smith, with the latter denying twice that he ever spoke with athletic director Pat Haden.

Other candidates could possibly include: Interim head coach Ed Orgeron, Boise State coach Chris Petersen, Vanderbilt coach James Franklin and Denver Broncos interim head coach Jack del Rio.

While Orgeron is to be considered, he is not likely to get the position.

Sumlin is famous for his work with quarterbacks, most notably Case Keenum while with Houston (now of the Houston Texans) and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
