Several NFL teams had expressed interest in Sumlin, according to the report. The Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears, New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers all currently do not have a head coach.
Sumlin, 50, is signed at Texas A&M through the 2019 season and would have to pay $5 million to leave the school before the end of the 2016 season.
He recently completed his third year as coach of the Aggies. Texas A&M went 8-5 this season and won the Liberty Bowl 45-37 over West Virginia. The Aggies have won their bowl game in each season under Sumlin.
Sumlin is 28-11 overall at A&M, after going 35-17 during four seasons as head coach of Houston.
