Texas A&M Aggies: Will Mushchamp

Fans select Sumlin as SEC's top coach

December, 3, 2012
We knew the Coach of the Year debate in the SEC this season would be a hot one, and that's reflected in the number of votes that have been cast in our SportsNation poll.

We asked you last week who deserved the SEC's top coaching honor, and with more than 24,000 votes cast, Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin is a runaway winner with 52 percent of the vote.

Sumlin guided the Aggies to a 10-2 record in his first season at Texas A&M, which was playing its first season in the SEC. Texas A&M will face Oklahoma in the AT&T Cotton Bowl.

The real race is for second place. Ole Miss' Hugh Freeze has garnered 14 percent of the vote. Vanderbilt's James Franklin has 13 percent, Florida's Will Muschamp 11 percent and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier 10 percent.

Earlier Monday, both Sumlin and Muschamp were named as finalists for the 2012 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award.
