Texas A&M Coaching Rumors: Air Force's Troy Calhoun Interviews For Job, According To Report

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun reportedly interviewed for Texas A&M's vacant position, which became available once the school fired Mike Sherman last week.

Air Force Falcons head coach Troy Calhoun interviewed for the vacant position with the Texas A&M Aggies on Tuesday, reports Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle. However, according to the report, Houston Cougars head coach Kevin Sumlin is still the presumed favorite to take the position.

Calhoun was a hot commodity last season when he could have taken over the Colorado Buffaloes after Dan Hawkins was fired. Then when the Denver Broncos fired Josh McDaniels, Calhoun was also a potential candidate to jump back to the team (he was previously an assistant with the Broncos from 2003-2005). But he declined both positions and affirmed his future with the Falcons. Calhoun is a graduate of the Air Force Academy and his loyalty to the school is second to none.

However, according to Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette, a source close to the situation believes Calhoun isn't interested in either Texas A&M's position or the North Carolina Tar Heels'. Calhoun didn't return a text message to Schwab.

Texas A&M fired Mike Sherman last week after four years at the helm. He had just one winning season (pending the team's appearance in the Meineke Car Care Bowl at the end of the season), going 9-4 during the 2010 season and losing the Cotton Bowl.
