Houston coach Kevin Sumlin is no longer a candidate in UCLA's coaching search, a source with knowledge of the situation told ESPNLosAngeles.com's Peter Yoon on Sunday afternoon.

Sumlin met with UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero this weekend but no offer was made and Sumlin is no longer considered a candidate for the job.

UCLA had turned to Sumlin after Boise State's Chris Petersen passed on the job late Thursday night, even though the Bruins discussed a five-year contract that would've paid him significantly more than $3 million annually and included at least $2.5 million for his staff, according to a source with knowledge of the discussions.

Sumlin is also considered a candidate for the Texas A&M job. He had been a candidate for the Arizona State opening, but the school told a representative for Sumlin that it has ended its pursuit of him, a source briefed on the discussion told ESPN's Joe Schad on Friday.

Information from ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne and Peter Yoon was used in this report.
