To be honest I originally thought the same thing. He has done a good job winning, and in the end that is what people would care about. And besides, you can't blame the coach TOO much for the actions of the player. But this is a little different:
Sumlin had a very personal and profound role in getting Johnny Manziel's original suspension overturned. So if Manziel brings the NCAA down on A&M, Sumlin has a great deal of stake in it happening. Much more than the average "the player did x" scenario you would normally find.
