Jimbo is on the downward roll.

I’m not sure he’s as attractive as he may seem at first.

I see Jimbo as another Les, so yes, please take him.

Jimbo is offering the standard "no comment" essentially.

Orlando Sentinel reports on Fisher

I think he's gone.

I think Texas A&M is gonna unload the bank account to sign Jimbo

Not sure they would offer as much to other coaches unless they are also at Jimbo’s level

What's interesting is that FSU officials are telling Fisher to just go ahead and get it over with.

Sounds like Fisher is gone. I don't know why he wouldn't just leave if that's what he wants to do.

It was looking more and more likely as the week went on, but I'm still shocked by this. Who leaves a coaching job at a place where they've already won the National Championship to go to a different school?

I know Fisher has LSU ties, but will he be able to recruit Texas? FSU always has lots of willing recruits... well, because it is Florida State. Just asking for opinions here. 04-cheers

And a ten year contract? Wow. If he doesn't work out A&M will have to sell off property to pay his way out of town.04-jawdrop It was time for Jimbo to move on anyway. He will earn lots of airline points finding players, but if he can rack up two or three good seasons the recruiting will take much less effort. Congrats 10th!

RE: A&M Coaches Search / Hiring Thread
I get it

Folks look at our FB program and its struggles and find this all perplexing

But in only looking at the FB record and dismissing us because of it, they don't realize who they are ****ing with

We are the the biggest school in the great state of Texas and one of the biggest in the nation.

We have a 10 BILLION dollar endowment because Texas A&M Petroleum Engineers run this states energy sector and companies like Exxon Mobile

We are tied for more Fortune 500 CEO alumni than anyone else

We are a one of just six Senior Military Colleges recognized by the DOD

We are an AAU school that routinely tops the charts for research levels conducted each year

We ARE the (Texas) Senate

To say we care about our beloved Fightin' Texas Aggie FB team and want to WIN is to say the Atlantic Ocean is DAMP

So yeah.

There's a reason you all voted us in.

Yeah, we know this, or at least I do and have stated as much on the main board, especially in the Jimbo Fisher thread. So my question is why haven't you produced? The SEC wouldn't mind some production out of A&M in terms of on field success. So what's holding this juggernaut back? You had all of this money and backing 5 years ago and Johnny Manziel at QB? There's something wrong within your athletic department or you would already have hired the best coach and won a natty.

We voted you in because we knew all of this. Now how about producing!

Your dog has a great pedigree, but so far he doesn't hunt. Texas has been down for a decade and he hasn't hunted. I think you've take step #1 finally. You've hired a proven coach instead of taking Houston's next hope. Now learn to keep your danged recruits at home and out of Oklahoma and hire a great D.C. and you'll be there.

The Aggie's cheese has been that putrid defense you kept running out on the field. But that seemed to be a Big 12 hangover. Defense still wins the SEC. Clemson finally started winning because they finally started prioritizing defense. I don't know what the heck UT's problems are but they seem to be systemic too.

Bear and Saban have a few things in common, but chief among them is that they both kept the boosters in their place. Tennessee, Texas, A&M, and from time to time my Auburn have all had fatal cases of boosteritis.

Now we have Sankey Pankey going on. A commish who heretofore hasn't taken the firm hand to stop this nonsense between schools and coaches which under Slive had a lid clamped down on it.

There is no disdain for taking A&M, but there are competitive expectations that have thus far not been met.

RE: A&M Coaches Search / Hiring Thread
I would argue this is the best sign of controlling the boosteritis

This AD ignored the calls for Chad Morris by the big money alums and went out and got a proven national title winner instead

And yes, we have been missing the ingredient of a great coach who take advantage of what we are offering which is basically every single ingredient you need to win big

Sumlin looked good on paper but had huge discipline issues and did not develop his talent

I look forward to proving to everyone that a great coach has everything he needs here to win big

A great coach will win big at A&M. Now we'll see if Jimbo is great on his own merit. I think he'll be fine, if he hires a great defensive coordinator.

Your coaching search went better than ours. Kudos to your AD for appreciating the importance of the A&M job and letting the department but run by BMD’s.
