Jimbo Fisher on leaving FSU for Texas A&M

Jimbo Fisher on leaving FSU for Texas A&M

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. 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. It marked the end of a somewhat surprising divorce between Fisher and Florida State, after the coach went 83-23 with one national title in his eight years at the school. "I think it was a no brainer in a insane way". You can have Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll, you can have the greatest coaches in the world, but if your administration doesn't see things in the way you see things and allow you to do things that way, nothing can be achieved. I had no plans on leaving there, had no plans on ever leaving there.

Fisher was lured away from Florida State, where he won a national championship in 2013, with a 10-year, $75 million contract at Texas A&M.

But Fisher's past relationship with Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward, the potential to relive their glory at LSU and the richest coaching contract in college football history ultimately presented an opportunity Fisher could not pass up. The Trojans have been recruiting Taylor-Stuart for a long while and he's been to campus multiple times including a recent trip to The Coliseum for a game.

"That's the objective", Fisher said.

"You have to be one". We did when we first got here. "We've got to get caught up in that area".

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

During his introductory press conference, Fisher was asked what he considered a reasonable timetable to transform A&M's football program good to great. "I promise you that".
