    • Tim Tadlock Pursued by Texas A&M

      • Schovanec quote: Kirby shared with me that A&M had reached out to inform him, I guess as a matter of courtesy, of their intense interest in coach Tadlock. We responded to those overtures. … Kirby had begun discussions with coach Tadlock several weeks ago, and it was just unacceptable to us that we would lose the best coach in the state of Texas.
