(SportsRadio 610) - Leadership at Texas A&M University has decided it no longer wants Jimbo Fisher as the Aggies' head football coach, according to a report published Sunday morning.
A decision to part ways with Fisher, with $76 million due on his contract, "was reached at the recommendation of the athletic department/university president during last Thursday's Board of Regents meeting," Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com reported Sunday.
The news comes on the heels of A&M's 51-10 blowout victory over Ole Miss. Fisher's overall record in six seasons with the Aggies is 45-25, but was never close enough of meeting the expectations of bringing a championship to College Station, as he did a decade ago for the Florida State Seminoles.
Likely the highlight of the Jimbo Fisher era will be the 2020 season, when the Aggies went 9-1 during the COVID-19 pandemic and won the Orange Bowl. Fisher never had a 10-win season in his six years with the Aggies, while he had six 10-plus-win seasons, including a national championship, in eight years at Florida State.
A&M still owes Fisher $76 million over the next eight years, so it is an expensive price to pay to part ways with the coach.
