Texas A&M introduces Jimbo Fisher as head coach

Texas A&M introduces Jimbo Fisher as head coach”

The issue is how this whole thing went down - and while some may want to blame the university for how this went down, it completely falls in the lap of Jimbo Fisher. Hopefully, fans of the Aggies realize that's what they are getting in their new coach.

ESPN says Texas A&M officials have approved a 10-year, $75 million dollar contract for Fisher, the richest deal in college football history in terms of total value. As spelled out in the release, "no state-appropriated funds will be used to pay the coach's salary".

For just the second time in slightly over four decades, FSU football is in the market for a head football coach after the decision by Jimbo Fisher to move on from Tallahassee and become the head coach of the Texas A&M Aggies. "I didn't really expect him to be here in the first place", said A&M fan Joe Ayers, who was on hand for Fisher's arrival. "We have everything in place to reach our goal, which is to bring a national title to College Station, and I can't wait to get started". His experience in the Southeastern Conference (SEC); his knowledge of the game; his recruiting acumen, and his management skills will allow him to achieve the highest levels of success when matched with what A&M offers. He takes over a Texas A&M program that went 7-5 this season under Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked November 26.

Fisher comes to Aggieland from Florida State, where he spent eight seasons as the head coach and led the Seminoles to an 83-23 record and the 2013 national championship. He was 48-16 in ACC play with three conference titles.
