SEC or CLE? Sumlin dismisses questions about Manziel's partying
JUL 15, 2014 2:50p ET
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin had to answer more than his fair share of questions about Johnny Manziel's off-the-field activities during the quarterback's two non-reshirted years in College Station.
So, now he's deferring them elsewhere.
Sumlin was asked about the Cleveland Browns quarterback at SEC Media Days in Alabama Tuesday - because what athlete or coach hasn't this offseason -- but didn't bite on the bait.
Sumlin asked about Manziel's partying. Smiles. "Is this the SEC Media Days? … That's a great question about the Cleveland Browns."— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) July 15, 2014
Plenty has been made of Manziel's behavior since being drafted by the Browns. From his Memorial Day weekend to Las Vegas to his ride upon an inflatable swan and attempt to use a stack of bills as a phone, Manziel has done everything to prove true his comments that he would "live life to the fullest."
At Texas A&M last season, Sumlin had to handle the controversy surrouding Manziel allegedly taking money for signing autographs.
Sumlin knows well Manziel's ability on the field. Whether Browns head coach Mike Pettine will reap the same rewards is a burning question heading into the season.
