Jimbo Fisher will become the new head coach at Texas A&M University.
After several weeks of interest in Fisher, the school was finally able to reel the coach in to take over the program. According to the Houston Chronicle, Fisher has been in A&M’s sights since the beginning of the season. By the end of November, there was no question that Texas A&M was aggressively recruiting Fisher as their top target.
The exact terms of Fisher’s contract are unknown, but several sources point to the coach earning at least $7 million a year. Fisher will not coach the regular season finale on Saturday.
At FSU, Fisher went 83-23 in almost eight full seasons with the Seminoles. In 2016 and 2017, his success took a hit as he went 8-8 against conference opponents. Fisher did lead the Seminoles to a national championship in 2013 and helped produce Jameis Winston, a Heisman winner. He also won three ACC titles in the span of 2012 to 2014.
