Maryland assistant and former Texas A&M and Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin was arrested in Florida for a DUI, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Sumlin was arrested in Hillsborough County, Florida, which includes Tampa, just before 1 a.m. on Saturday. Specifics about his arrest are not yet known, though there was no crash or damage and he reportedly refused a breathalyzer test at the scene.

Sumlin was later released on bond.


After spending time away from college football the last couple of years, he returned after a stint working as the head coach and general manager of the USFL’s Houston Gamblers. He was hired as the Terrapins’ associate head coach, co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach.

Sumlin’s first head coaching job was for the Houston Cougars, where he spent four seasons from 2008 to 2011 and went 35-17 and 24-8 in league play. He then went to Texas A&M from 2012 to 2017 where he coached Johnny Manziel to the Heisman Trophy during his first season with the program, and the Aggies went 11-2 and won the Cotton Bowl.

He compiled a 51-26 record with the Aggies, but he was fired after the 2017 campaign. He was hired by Arizona a year later, but he lasted just three seasons and only won nine games.


Maryland will take on Northwestern next on Saturday. The Terrapins, who have lost two straight, hold a 5-2 record and are vying for their third straight winning season.
