Sumlin is in his first season as Maryland’s co-offensive coordinator. He’s worked at a variety of programs over the course of his coaching career, which included head-coaching stints at Houston, Texas A&M and Arizona.
Sumlin was last a head coach for the Wildcats from 2018-2020. He parted ways with the program after turning in a record of 9-20 over three seasons.
Sumlin previously had a longer stint as Texas A&M’s head coach. His time with the Aggies included an 11-win campaign in 2012. He was A&M’s head coach when Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy — just the second Aggie to win the honor in program history.
Maryland is set to take on Northwestern on the road in Week 9.
