Jimbo Fisher introduced as Texas A&M head football coach

Texas A&M Football: Aggies Announce Hiring Of Jimbo Fisher

Jimbo Fisher went from a $72000 salary to one of the highest-paid coaches in sports in 19 years

You can bet Texas A&M will pour money into its program to try to make the Aggies a consistent SEC West contender under Fisher.

Woodward said by bringing Fisher to A&M that is just another confirmation that Aggieland has was it takes to do so. Fisher was formally introduced at Texas A&M on Monday. 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. "And there was a commitment to excellence and there was a vision for what we wanted to do", Fisher said.

Jimbo Fisher said he never meant to leave Florida State.

A&M prides itself in being one of the friendliest campuses and universities in the world and according to Fisher, Texas A&M is second to none.

"I never had any intention of leaving Florida State", Fisher said.

Before the Texas A&M praise, Fisher was gracious in thanking former FSU coach Bobby Bowden, who hired him as an offensive coordinator in 2007 before he replaced Bowden as head coach in 2010.

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.

"Being here I don't have to tell yall that, there's no doubt, it is everything I envisioned and more", Fisher said. There's a oneness to everything you do to be successful.

A&M lured Fisher to A&M with a historic contract.

Fisher signed a 10-year contract worth $75 million. In addition to that, Fisher will become the second highest paid coach in college football behind Alabama's Nick Saban. "But I wish coach Sumlin stayed". 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 understand that I come in here with great expectations", Fisher said.
