The Texas A&M University regents have unanimously approved a new contract for head coach Kevin Sumlin. A school spokesman said it should be signed today, according to Allen Reed of the Bryan-College Station Eagle.

Sumlin agreed to a new six-year contract on Nov. 30. Financial details were not released but he had received a raise from $2 million annually to an average of $3.1 million per year over a five-year deal in February.

MANDEL: Jameis or Johnny for the Heisman Trophy?

Sumlin, who is finishing his second season with the Aggies, has been mentioned as a possible candidate for other opportunities including the Houston Texans' head coach job. Sumlin has ties to Houston, where he coached the University of Houston before taking the Texas A&M job.
