Jimbo Fisher Introduces TAMU To Girlfriend Courtney

Jimbo Fisher Introduces TAMU To Girlfriend Courtney

With Fisher's resume including a national title win at Florida State, he's ready to tackle that goal at College Station.

Fisher said he didn't plan to leave FSU, but he called A&M a destination job - one he hopes to retire from.

"First of all, I never had any intention of leaving Florida State", Fisher said during his press conference. "You can have Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll - you can have the greatest coaches in the world".

Fisher's contract is a whopping 75 million bucks over the next 10 years! Fisher said Woodward provides that unity at Texas A&M which was one of the major reasons he made a decision to take the job. "But with the people I'm working with, with the place I'm going and (Woodward) explaining the things to me, as I researched, I thought it was an opportunity that I just couldn't pass up".

Fisher was introduced to A&M as the head coach of the football program in the Hall of Champions within Kyle Field by A&M System Chancellor John Sharp, Board of Regents chairman Charles W. Schwartz, University President Michael K. Young and Woodward.

Seminoles players found out about Fisher's departure before a scheduled 2 p.m. meeting Friday, where he addressed the team one last time in his eight-year tenure. Fisher said of FSU.

Another factor that could be playing against Texas A&M as Taylor-Stuart's recruitment continues is that four-star defensive back Leon O'Neal recently de-committed from the Aggies.

Jimbo Fisher had a curious comment during his Texas A&M introduction that might raise a few eyebrows at Florida State. There's a oneness to everything you do to be successful.

The contract would make him possibly the second highest-paid coach behind only Alabama's Nick Saban. "That's certainly true of a coach, it's true when I hire an administrator, a professor, give scholarship money", Young said. The Seminoles would go on to win three conference championships and one national championship, and snare a school-record 29-game winning streak.
