Kevin Sumlin is taking plenty of heat for Texas A&M’s shocking defeat to UCLA. It’s not just fans that think the Aggies should head in a new direction at head coach.
The Aggies did not score a point in the fourth quarter after rushing for more than 300 yards in the first three quarters as they blew a 34-point lead.
Courtesy of 247Sports reporter Brad Crawford, here’s a list of members in the media who weighed in on the situation, many of which believe Sumlin should be fired because of the historic comeback from the Bruins.
Jim Mora: Looks like I'm moving to the top of all those hot seat rankings.
Kevin Sumlin: Hold my beer.

You can't let Kevin Sumlin get on the team plane if they lose this. That's a Los Angeles college football rule.

When Kevin Sumlin gets fired he's going to have nightmares about that 3rd down call, up 13, with 5 minutes left, at UCLA 16. So, so dumb. pic.twitter.com/Ahxxec6bAq

Since Johnny Manziel was drafted, he made about $7M on & off the field. Kevin Sumlin has made $16.6 million during that time.

If only Kevin Sumlin had nine months to prepare for every game. He might go down as the greatest coach in college football history

While Johnny Manziel made A&M's Kevin Sumlin a very rich coach.. Josh Rosen may have just got him pink-slipped.
Wow…Rosen can sling it

Kevin Sumlin is going to have to explain not going to Jake Hubenak. It’s clear Mond can only run and is too big a liability in passing gm

ESPN personality Paul Finebaum has a differing opinion from the media members above, believing it would be an overreaction “to fire a coach after one game.”
Texas A&M hosts Nicholls State on Sept. 9, with the game televised on ESPNU.
