But Perry did not say whether the conversations were merely internal or involved direct talks with the Southeastern Conference.

Texas A&M stated that President R. Bowen Loftin is "committed to doing what is best for Texas A&M not only now, but also into the future."

It said the university has "wide-ranging conversations" on all aspects of the college.
