And based on the way things go with Sumlin at his new job, his salary could be even higher than what it was at A&M when he made $5 million a year.

Arizona will not be Kevin Sumlin's only source of income as Texas A&M is set to pay a $10.5 million dollar buyout to Sumlin which should add another $2 million dollars a year for Sumlin not to coach Texas A&M.

It is said that Sumlin's agreement with Arizona has been finalized and that he will become the Wildcats' next head football coach.

"We're going to have to evaluate and recruit", Sumlin explained. Over and over again people told me: "Kevin Sumlin".

However, with the news that Arizona had hired Sumlin - who vowed Tuesday to run a similar but more aggressive version of Rich Rodriguez's spread offense - Joiner chose to end the process and speculation.

Iheanacho scores English football's first VAR goal
Reading's Icelandic forward Jon Dadi Bodvarsson got a hat-trick for the second-tier side who beat Stevenage 3-0. It was the first time in English football that a goal initially disallowed would be overturned.

Of the five SEC coaches fired in 2017, Sumlin is the only one to land another coaching job for the 2018 season.

Sumlin made a base salary of $5 million a year ago, before being fired in December 2017. That figure will be offset by whatever salary he receives at Arizona.

Former coach Rich Rodriguez earned $2,475,000 in the past year of his contract before being fired without cause on January 2.

Because of the way his contract was worded, Sumlin was owed the entire salary left on his deal within 60 days of his firing. Instead, the money will come from the self-sustaining athletics department as well as, "private donations from private donors who support the decision", Ridenour said.
