COLLEGE STATION, Texas (WIAT) — Texas A&M went with experience for their legal team earlier this week.

They hired the same firm Auburn did in 2010.  Now the Manziel family is going with experience as well.

The Manziel family has hired El Paso lawyer Jim Darnell who has experience dealing with the NCAA.

He worked with Baylor when basketball was sanctioned a few years ago.

He’s predicting Johnny Manziel will not miss any time on the field.
