Sources: Texas A&M nearing deal with Mike Elko as next coach



Texas A&M is in deep discussions with Duke's Mike Elko to make him the school's next head coach, sources told ESPN.

Elko addressed the potential move with his Duke team at a team meeting on Sunday and told them some clarity would come in the next 24 hours. Sources told ESPN that a deal could be finalized as early as Sunday night.

Elko is a former Texas A&M defensive coordinator, who left there two years ago to take the Duke head coaching job. Elko was the coordinator for some of Texas A&M's best recent seasons, including the 9-1 season in 2020 that culminated with an Orange Bowl victory.
