Texas A&M set to move on from Jimbo Fisher as head football coach

Jimbo Fisher is expected to be let go as the head football coach at Texas A&M on Sunday.

TexAgs co-owner and executive editor Billy Liucci first reported the news on X, the platform previously known as Twitter.

His ouster would put an end to Fisher’s controversial and disappointing six-year tenure in College Station.

According to Liucci, the decision to terminate Fisher was made at a Board of Regents meeting on Thursday. Texas A&M University will owe Fisher approximately $76 million for the remaining eight years of his guaranteed contract.

Liucci’s report comes after A&M (6-4, 4-3 in the SEC) defeated Mississippi State at Kyle Field on Saturday night, 51-10.

Fisher leaves Texas A&M with a 45-25 overall record and a 27-21 record in Southeastern Conference play.

It is unclear who will assume the role of interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

More to come as this story develops.

I wish he had earned the contract and this didn't have to happen, but I think it's the right call at this point.

Interim HC will be Petrino. Hide the motorcycles


Edit - pure speculation on my part so don't take this as fact. But it makes about as much sense as anything else does in this crazy mixed up world we call Aggie football...

Okay, you took down the longer, original version and put up the stub. We have the archival screenshots, you know.

You and BL panicked everyone by this. Speculation was that you'd been hacked or had leaked out info too early in the day.

Huge mistake. Just need a new line coach. Next 10 years will suck. Even more.

While I agree, your point relies on the possibility of Jimbo firing his o-line coach for one that fits a scheme more suited to his OC's rather than his own. The lack of trust in Jimbo making good hires is why he's being let go.

Well now the speculation starts on who our next coach will be.

As we saw last night with Henderson, running quarterbacks in college are the new norm. Jimbo never changed with the times.

Please be true. He's a great person but we need something to happen. It's been too long.

Now I sort of hope it doesn't happen just to see how texags covers the rest of the season with their credentials revoked.

And another vicious circle of A&M football culture comes to an all too familiar end. It goes deeper than who the coach or players are. It's just our culture. We can't be a winner regardless of who the head coach is. Texas A&M is a rich but dead end for all coaches. I've been a witness for 65 years.

Oof!! Praying this is the right move but unless we truly have a much better option we'll be on the coaching carousel for years!

John Sharp has to be fired for this to be the last chapter of this disaster.

You know Billy was champing at the bit to be the one to break the news this morning for TA exposure. He saw his own $$$ signs

I hope I'm wrong, but I have a strong feeling that Texas A&M football is about to enter a dark age not seen in some time.

Keep him as interim and then make him HC maybe. I could support that …

Agree. Feels like a match made in heaven when we joined the SEC and then slowly deteriorated into a series of miserable marriages/divorces, with the added bonus of the sips/sooners moving into the house next door.
