Aggies introduce new coach

Kevin Sumlin had opportunities to leave Houston ever since his first year with the Cougars.

He never wanted to move until the Aggies came after him.

Sumlin was introduced as Texas A&M's coach on Monday, two days
after he was hired to replace Mike Sherman who was fired after a disappointing 6-6 season.

Sumlin will move from Conference USA to perhaps the toughest football league in the country with the Aggies joining the Southeastern Conference next year.

He's not daunted by the challenge and says "I didn't come here to do anything but win."

Athletic director Bill Byrne says Sumlin's deal is for five years at $2 million annually. It is subject to approval by the board of regents.
