Kragthorpe lands at Texas A&M

By Brian Bennett

Former Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe wasn't unemployed for long.

Kragthorpe, who was fired after the end of the regular season following three straight non-winning seasons with the Cardinals, was hired over the weekend as Texas A&M's passing game coordinator. That's the same school where Kragthorpe was offensive coordinator held from 1998 to 2000 and it's where he began to build his reputation as a bright offensive mind.

Louisville fans didn't see much proof of that this past season, when their team averaged only 18.1 points as Kragthorpe took over as his own playcaller. Perhaps a fresh start in more familiar terrain will help restore Kragthorpe's career.
