Each of the last four seasons, Texas A&M has seen a promising season derailed with an end-of-season collapse.
In 2013, it dropped its final two regular season games before rebounding with a bowl win vs. Duke. In 2014-15, the team dropped five of its final eight games, and in 2016, it lost five of its final seven. With all those late-season struggles, questions surrounding the team’s strength and conditioning program are bound to arise.
So it should be no surprise that rumors have begun circulating that changes may indeed be coming to the program, according to GigEm 247.
It’s unclear whether director of football sports performance Larry Jackson will be removed, but Texas A&M has posted an opening for a Head Strength Coach on its human resources website, which differs from the title currently held by Jackson.
Jackson has been with the program since Sumlin took the job prior to the 2012 season. He previously worked with Sumlin at Houston.
