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.
