Three NFL teams "pursued" this month. That's according to a CBSSports report Saturday.

Texas A reacted as schools [url=]cheap nfl youth jerseys stitched[/url] do with money. The Aggies announced, also Saturday, Sumlin will receive a raise that will nearly double his current contract.

But Sumlin will eventually face what all winning coaches face. If he builds upon last season and he should with the Heisman winner back the NFL will come after him again. There will be more money, and maybe from a better NFL team than approached him this time, and he will have to make a decision.

Sumlin will know for sure before 2017 when his new contract is up.

The NFL would be better off if Sumlin had jumped this month. After all, eight NFL teams replaced coaches, and all eight passed on anyone of color. Among the choices was a coach () and a guy who went 2525 in four seasons at Syracuse ().

A number of black NFL assistants aren't happy, and the is again being seen as ineffective. According to reports, , who had been the Arizona defensive coordinator, got into a heated exchange with the team's GM when he found out he [url=]cheap nfl youth jerseys stitched[/url] wasn't in line for the promotion.

On the day the Cardinals opted for Bruce Arians and filled the league's final opening, the signed Horton to be their defensive coordinator.

, the comedian, is among those who noticed the theme. He tweeted Friday that " wins 4 games and everyone wants him, wins 10 games and can't get a job."

So there have been a lot of questions, and one came last week from a reporter on the NFL Network: "Where's the AfricanAmerican Chip Kelly?"

He's in College Station. Sumlin and Kelly are about the same age, and they run a similar offense.

Kelly had never worked in the NFL until now, and he initially turned down the Eagles. He, too, was a college coach at heart.

But he changed his mind. And asked to address the switch from college to the pros at his first news conference in Philadelphia, Kelly gave a short answer.

"Football is football," he said.

Sumlin, if in the same situation, would say something similar. He's a confident personality with a strong sense of how to run a program. That's one of many reasons to believe Sumlin could coach at any level.

His former boss, , is the same. The NFL also came after him years ago, and Stoops opted to stay at Oklahoma.

"I think it's fair to say in some cases, we may have better jobs than some NFL jobs," Stoops has said. "The allure, some of it, isn't as great as it used to be."

But Stoops was also saying the NFL was once an allure. There's the challenge, and there's the sense that the highest level of the sport would be the higher calling.

And, yes, the NFL salaries are also higher.

Stoops considered all of this, just as and others have, and now he's set where he is. He's past that time in his career, with his college star rising and the NFL calling, when he had to decide where he [url=]authentic nfl jerseys big and tall[/url] belonged.
