Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward hasn't set a timetable for replacing Kevin Sumlin, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Aggies speed up the hiring process to strengthen their chances of landing top recruits.

It's unclear who might be on Woodward's short list. However, many expect Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher will be a top consideration.

The list certainly does not begin and end with Fisher. A breakdown of the candidates, which includes Fisher, point to an eclectic group. Some of the candidates may also consider vacancies at Arizona State, Arkansas and Tennessee.

Jimbo Fisher

The West Virginia native may want a change of scenery after a miserable season in 2017. The Seminoles entered the season at No. 3 but have struggled to a 5-6 record. It's unclear if he would want to make the move to College Station after a decade coaching in Tallahassee.

Fisher, 52, has proven to be one of the best coaches in college football and would certainly provide a big boost to the Aggies' recruiting efforts. Hiring a coach with a national championship under his belt could instantly make the Aggies an immediate title contender.

At the moment, Fisher looks like the frontrunner.

Mike Norvell

The 36-year-old is one of the hottest commodities on the coaching market, having led Memphis to an impressive 10-1 record. A native of Dallas, Norvell might be interested in returning to Texas.

There has been some thought that Norvell could find his way back to Arizona State, where he served as the offensive coordinator from 2012 through 2015. However, the Sun Devils are reportedly in serious talks with Herm Edwards.

Justin Fuente

The 41-year-old already has plenty of head coaching experience. After back-to-back strong seasons at Memphis, he moved on to Virginia Tech, where he has compiled a 19-7 record. This season, the Hokies have three losses, but two came against No. 1 Clemson and No. 7 Miami.

Fuente, who grew up in Oklahoma, spent four years on the TCU coaching staff so he should know a lot about Texas recruiting.

Jeremy Pruitt

Alabama's defensive coordinator might be a longshot, but the 43-year-old is highly respected and could be a good option for the Aggies. He has a great deal of SEC experience after several years in Tuscaloosa and after serving as Georgia's defensive coordinator.
