New, 74 comments

There is lots of smoke surrounding Bud Foster and the Texas A&M defensive coordinator vacancy. And on the internet, where there's smoke... well, sometimes it's just smoke.

Bud Foster, Virginia Tech

This report from the Aggie blog Just Wait Til Next Season stirred up a lot of conversation last night. You may recognize the author "beergut" who ran the former A&M blog on SBNation. The post indicates that two sources stated an agreement had been reached between Texas A&M and Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster.

There has also been plenty of discussion about Bud Foster's pay because USAToday released a list of assistant coach salaries and Foster was the highest paid. As we reported last week, $800K of his $1.37 million in pay this season was from a one-time annuity agreed to in 2010.

No coaching search is complete without Flight Aware rumors, and TexAgs.com user aeroag14 spotted this flight from College Station to Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional airport. The user also pointed out that the same plane was in the Dallas-Fort Worth area around the time Kevin Sumlin was meeting with five-star linebacker prospect Malik Jefferson (Mesquite, TX).

Will Muschamp, former Florida Head Coach

Talk of Will Muschamp coming to Texas A&M has cooled considerably over the past several days. There is now talk of interest from the Houston Cougars for a head coaching spot.

Auburn and South Carolina are both still in pursuit of Muschamp's services.
