Texas A&M announced today that it and offensive coordinator Jake Spavital had agreed to a “mutual parting of the ways,” according to a tweet from CNN’s Jill Martin.
Spavital, 30, served as offensive coordinator under coach Kevin Sumlin for the past two seasons and drew a lot of fan scrutiny over his play-calling abilities. 2015 was not an easy season for him, as Texas A&M used three quarterbacks and lost two of them in Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray to transfers.
Needless to say, unless Texas A&M solves its quarterback issues soon, be it through Jake Hubenak suddenly looking better or the school landing transfer QB and former Oklahoma Sooner Trevor Knight, Spavital’s successor will have his hands full, and even moreso if Sumlin leaves for the NFL.
