Former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin will not be taking over at Central Florida, per a report.
According to Rivals publisher Brandon Helwig, UCF is moving on to other candidates:

The Aggies fired Sumlin in November after an up-and-down tenure in College Station. But don’t feel too sorry for him — his buyout requires Texas A&M to pay him $10.4 million, regardless of his future job status.
UCF is looking to replace coach Scott Frost, who returned to his alma mater Nebraska after leading the Knights to a perfect 12-0 season this year.
Sumlin’s name likely will continue to be bounced around at other programs.
