This time it’s for real, at least we think.

Former LSU general manager Austin Thomas has been hired at Texas A&M, according to a report earlier this afternoon. Back in December, a report from Tennessee’s GoVols247.com surfaced and reported a deal was in the works for Thomas to return to Knoxville, his alma mater. However, the deal never got done, in a bizarre sequence of events, and Thomas was a free agent, if you will.

Details regarding Thomas’ deal is unclear, but his final destination is set in stone. He will join another SEC squad and Jimbo Fisher in College Station.
