Maybe you've heard.

I bet you've heard.

The University of Arizona Wildcats have hired and now we've heard from – the new head football coach, Kevin Sumlin from Texas A&M.

Right out of the gate – the University's legal eagles have already made their best play in making sure Sumlin's contract had a built-in protection to prevent what happened when the University let Rich Rodriguez go.

Rodriquez got his waking papers but he also got a check for upwards of $6 million. That won't happen with Sumlin.

What happened with Rich Rod was an expensive lesson to learn. But now it's a new era. Bear Down Wildcats.
