Jimbo Fisher named Head Football Coach at Texas A&M

Jimbo Fisher named Head Football Coach at Texas A&M

Texas A&M University chancellor John Sharp listens to a press conference with the new head football coach Jimbo Fisher at the school's Hall of Champions at Kyle Field, Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, in College Station. And Herman's deal guarantees $45 million less. All players will get to keep their jerseys and helmet and receive a ring to commemorate this memorable honor.

Yes, A&M has had endless resources at its disposal for years, yet have been unable to produce desired results. A year in which the Tigers won six SEC games for the first time since 2012 and have a chance if they beat Notre Dame to win 10 for the first time since 2013.

The uniforms are made by Nike, whose co-founder Bill Bowerman managed supplies for the 10th Mountain Division.

He should have known how his words would play at FSU, especially since a lot of people were still deciding whether Fisher was just a driven opportunist who made an understandable career move or an ungrateful mercenary jerk. Once those dollars stop coming in, revenue will dip.

"I think it was a no-brainer, in a crazy way", Fisher said. Maybe. Personally, I don't think he's worth what Texas A&M is paying him.

Fisher is "looking to set his mark" and get out of the shadow of Bobby Bowden. A&M's spending on sports, Young said, generates a significant return on investment.

He recently had a great in-home visit with assistant coach Jeff Banks in recent days but the five-star cornerback admitted he doesn't know all that much about new Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher.

Texas A&M isn't shy about getting rid of a coach with a winning record, either. This year, A&M fired its previous coach, Kevin Sumlin, after his sixth season.

Last year in a foxsports.com article that listed the 20 lowest-paid Power Five coaches in the nation, the greatest-to-least list began with Arizona's Rich Rodriguez who was the high man at $2.86 million annually, and ended with Big 12 cellar dweller Kansas and its coach, David Beaty's $801,109.

Then he landed in College Station.

Fisher's Seminoles were also a force to be reckoned with on the recruiting trail, consistently finishing among the top 10 classes in the country. No state-appropriated funds will be used to pay the coach's salary.

"But in our life, there's opportunities out there you see". A&M's president, Frank Vandiver, even threatened to resign over the deal.

Although the Aggies finished the season 7-5, Sumlin left the team in remarkable shape.

Josh studied journalism at Seton Hill University. "I have a vision of what we can be".
