Jimbo Fisher

Head Coach

Jimbo Fisher, who led Florida State to the college football national championship during the 2013 season, is entering his second year as Texas A&M head football coach. His first A&M team finished with a 9-4 record, including a close loss to eventual national champion Clemson, a 74-72 seven OT win over a top 10 LSU team, and a 52-13 Gator Bowl win against NC State. Fisher compiled an 83-23 record and won at least ten games in six of his eight seasons at the helm in Tallahassee. His teams had four top ten finishes and three other top 25 finishes. Known for his acumen in developing quarterbacks, Fisher has mentored four signal callers who became NFL first round picks. Prior to serving as the offensive coordinator and then head coach of the Seminoles, Fisher was Nick Saban's OC at LSU, where he also won a national title. Saban has called Fisher the best offensive coordinator to ever work for him. Fisher also led offenses at Auburn, Cincinnati, and Samford.

Darrell Dickey

Darrell Dickey

Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks

Darrell Dickey joined the Texas A&M staff as offensive coordinator after six years at Memphis, first working alongside Justin Fuente and then Mike Norvell. He also served as interim head coach when Fuente departed for Virginia Tech. Under Dickey's and Jimbo Fisher's leadership, the 2018 Aggies ranked fourth in the SEC in total offense, averaging 472 yards and 36 points per game. Dickey's final Memphis squad ranked second nationally in scoring offense, averaging 47.7 points per game, and fourth in total offense at over 548 yards per game. The Tigers also averaged over 200 yards per game on the ground. Prior to his time at Memphis, Dickey spent time coaching both in the SEC and in Texas, including serving as a graduate assistant under Jackie Sherrill at Texas A&M in 1985. In the early 1990s, he coached tight ends at LSU and quarterbacks and running backs at Mississippi State. He was the head coach at North Texas from 1998-2006 and led the Mean Green to four straight Sun Belt Titles from 2001-2004.

Mike Elko

Mike Elko

Defensive Coordinator

Mike Elko joined the A&M staff to run the Aggie defense after helping revitalize a Notre Dame team that spent much of 2017 in the top ten and closed the season with a win over LSU in the Citrus Bowl. Elko has built a reputation as an aggressive defensive coordinator who builds schemes around players' strengths with an exceptional ability to adjust. That resume was on display in his first season in Aggieland as the A&M defense improved significantly over the previous year and throughout the 2018 campaign. Before heading to South Bend, the 40 year-old Elko was the defensive coordinator at Wake Forest for three seasons and Bowling Green for five. Neither program is a football power, yet Elko joined Notre Dame as one of only two active defensive coordinators with five consecutive top 40 defenses. Elko's 2015 unit was one of four defenses in the country to finish among the top-20 in scoring defense, sacks, and forced turnovers. The other three teams on that list were playoff qualifiers Alabama and Washington and the national champion Clemson Tigers.

Dameyune Craig, who was a record-setting quarterback at Auburn during his playing days, comes to Aggieland after multiple coaching stops throughout the southeast. Notably, Craig spent time at Florida State under head coach Jimbo Fisher, overseeing the Seminoles' quarterbacks and recruiting efforts from 2010-2012 and returning to Tallahassee as an offensive analyst in 2017. In between his stints at FSU, Craig was Auburn's co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach from 2013-2015 and coached receivers at LSU in 2016. Craig has been ranked as one of the nation's top recruiters by multiple outlets and recruited Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston to Florida State as part of the Seminoles' top-five 2012 class.

Josh Henson

Offensive Line

Josh Henson comes to Texas A&M after three seasons at his alma mater, Oklahoma State, where he coached the offensive line in 2017-18 after one campaign as an offensive analyst. Despite having to field seven different starting offensive line combinations in 2018 because of injuries, Henson's group helped pave the way for a Cowboy offense that ranked in the top 15 nationally in scoring offense, total offense, passing offense and first downs. Additionally, the Cowboys ranked second in the Big 12 in rushing offense (190.3 yards per game), rushing touchdowns (30) and rushing yards per carry (4.8). As a player, Henson was a standout offensive lineman for the Cowboys who logged 37 starts over his four-year career. As a senior in 1997, he was a second-team All-Big 12 performer and was a leader for a Cowboy squad that went 8-4 and finished second in the Big 12 South.

James Coley arrived at Texas A&M from Georgia, where he served as the Bulldogs offensive coordinator and assistant head coach and was part of the 2017 staff that guided the Bulldogs to a school record-tying 13 victories and the first SEC championship in over a decade. Prior to his time at Georgia, Coley was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Miami, and the Hurricanes led the nation in explosive plays during his tenure. Coley rejoins Jimbo Fisher after the two worked together previously at both LSU and Florida State; he was offensive coordinator and tight ends coach under Fisher for the Seminoles. Coley also has coached for the Miami Dolphins Florida International. Coley and his wife, Kenia, have two children.

Since returning to A&M in 2012, he’s helped Damontre Moore reach All-American status and Myles Garrett break the SEC freshman sack record with 11.5 in 2014. Price previously spent two- and three-year stints leading the defensive line at Ole Miss, with a tour on Auburn’s defensive staff from 1999-2008 in between. Auburn led the SEC in sacks in 2005, including 11 against Alabama alone.

Elijah Robinson

Interior Defensive Line

One of the youngest members of the Aggie staff, Elijah Robinson spent four years at Baylor (2017) and Temple (2014-16) before joining Jimbo Fisher in College Station. In his four years as defensive line coach for the Bears and Owls, Robinson coached seven players to all-conference accolades, while his 2014 Temple team led the AAC in scoring defense and passing defense. Before his time in Waco and Philadelphia, Robinson played college football at Penn State and, after a career-ending injury, worked as a graduate assistant for the Nittany Lions.

As a part of Jimbo Fisher's and Mike Elko's first A&M staff, Santucci helped lead an Aggie defense that finished in the top 50 nationally for the first time in over ten years. That 2018 team closed the year with a Gator Bowl win to complete a 9-3 season. Prior to his first stint in Aggieland, Santucci coached with Elko at Notre Dame, was the linebackers coach at Texas State, and spent four seasons coaching at Stony Brook, where he was also an All-American and 2009 Big South Defensive Player of the Year.

The former Stanford Cardinal defensive back joins the Texas A&M staff following a two-year stay in Memphis as the passing game coordinator and defensive backs coach and a short stint as the DBs coach at Florida State. Rushing, an All-American in college, also won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts during his time in the National Football League. During his time at Stanford, Rushing was also considered the greatest return man in school history, twice earning All-Pac-10 honors for his work on special teams.
