Multiple Texas A&M pay sites reported today that Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin met with freshman Kyler Murray and his father Kevin on Tuesday. Presumably, this discussion centered on Kyler's role in the Aggie offense going forward. Following the transfer of Kyle Allen, there is considerable uncertainty surrounding A&M's football future.
Some fans have expressed worry that this meeting may signal major problems between Sumlin and the Murrays. Will Kyler play baseball for the Aggies this Spring? Will he start in the Music City Bowl? Is there a possibility that he will seek a transfer? Adding fuel to the fire, this Rusty Burson tweet appeared Tuesday evening.
I apologize for every negative word I have said about @JakeSpavital Problems above him.— Rusty Burson (@12thManRusty) December 16, 2015
Rusty Burson is well-connected as the former VP/Editor for 12th Man Magazine. While we have not established whether Rusty's tweet is related to the meeting between the Murrays and Sumlin, the timing is curious. We should be in for an interesting week.
Coach Sumlin is scheduled to meet with the media on Wednesday for a pre-bowl game press conference.
