Report: Kyler Murray will transfer out of Texas A&M

Johnny Manziel might be gone, but the Manziel-sized headaches remain for Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin.

Aggies quarterback Kyler Murray, who saw action as a freshman this season and was thought to be the future of the program after the transfer of Kyle Allen, will reportedly transfer also.

Murray's decision is final, according to's Billy Liucci.

Last year, Sumlin lost quarterback Kenny Hill to a transfer after he lost his starting job midway through the 2014 season. This year, Allen began the season as the starter, but lost the job to Murray. Allen has already announced he is transferring and is no longer with the program. His decision cleared the deck for Murray to be a long-term starter, but it appears Murray isn't happy either.

The Aggies began the season 5-0, but their season began to crumble when Allen struggled in the team's first loss to Alabama and subsequently gave way to Murray as the starter. Texas A&M (8-4) lost four of its last seven games and its fast-paced, shotgun offense was held to 10 points or less three times.

Sumlin and the Aggies will face Louisville in the Music City Bowl Dec. 30.
