COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Texas A&M University officials announced a sincere, long-term commitment to Aggie football head coach Kevin Sumlin Thursday after executing a six-year contract extension for Sumlin following a telephonic meeting of the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.

The extension will raise Sumlin's annual compensation to $5 million. Specific language was drafted into the agreement regarding buy-out clauses without cause for both parties. Sumlin's buy-out obligation to the University extends through the 2016 season, including any post-season contests, requiring restitution in the amount of $5 million dollars to the University. Texas A&M's buy-out clause runs the length of the contract through December 31, 2019.

Sumlin is 19-6 in two years at Texas A&M and 54-23 in six seasons as a head coach. The No. 20 Aggies are currently preparing for their upcoming match-up with No. 22 Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31.
