ESPN college football analyst Booger McFarland appeared on the SEC Network’s Paul Finebaum Show Friday evening and said that Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher agreed that the Aggies were a "soft" team in the past.
"I talked to Jimbo in Atlanta. I told Jimbo point-blank — the same thing I told you guys about Texas A&M the last several years — A&M is a soft program," McFarland said. "Jimbo looked me in the eye and was like, ‘You know what, you’re damn right. We are soft, but I’m going to change that.’" Alright then. This is a pretty blatant shot at Kevin Sumlin and his previous staff. It's also not an uncommon criticism of the Texas A&M program; you just don't usually see head coaches acknowledge it. We kind of with Texas A&M played Arizona this year, now. Feb 24 - 5:58 PM

Texas A&M and Appalachian State have agreed to a match-up for the 2022 season.

The Aggies will play host to the Mountaineers on Sept. 10, 2022. This will be the first meeting between the two teams. This is the second nonconference tilt that has been scheduled by Texas A&M for the 2022 season. They previously locked in a home date with Miami for Sept. 17 of that year.

Former Minnesota HC Tim Brewster will join Jimbo Fisher's staff at Texas A&M.

Brewster had spent the last four years on Fisher's staff as the Tight Ends coach, and is known as one of the better recruiters in college football. Prior to that he served as coach of the Gophers where he went 15-30 in four years at Minnesota. The exact role he'll serve at Texas A&M hasn't been announced yet.

ESPN's Paul Finebaum believes that Texas A&M HC Jimbo Fisher will "elevate the [Aggies] program significantly."

Finebaum writes that he has "no doubt" that Fisher is going to help to turbocharge the Aggies. He posted an 83-23 record -- and won the national championship in 2013 -- across eight seasons with the Seminoles. While Fisher is most definitely one of the top coaches in the country, he now enters contention with Alabama in the SEC West with expectations already pumped up for his arrival after six seasons of respectable-though-not-respected ball under the departed Kevin Sumlin. These things sometimes take a little more time to gel than the immediate reaction would have it.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that Texas A&M has approved a 10-year, $75 million contract for new HC Jimbo Fisher.

These numbers first surfaced in reports on Thursday night. According to Schlabach, they were on the money and the deal has now been approved. It works out to an annual salary of $7.5 million, making Fisher the second-highest paid coach in the FBS behind only Bama's Nick Saban, who will make $8.1 million annually starting in 2018.

Florida State's Jimbo Fisher resigned as head coach and will be named the new HC of Texas A&M.

Per ESPN's Mark Schlabach, Fisher won’t coach the Seminoles on Saturday in their regular-season finale against UL-Monroe. Last night, it was reported that A&M will offer Fisher a 10-year contract worth around $75 million. Over eight years in Tallahassee, Fisher went 83-23. Fisher led the Seminoles to the 2013 national title and coached the school’s first ever No. 1 overall pick, QB Jameis Winston. Until this year, he'd never had a team finish outside the top-25 in the AP poll, and entering this year, he'd finished with a top-10 recruiting class in six of his last seven seasons. In College Station, Fisher replaces Kevin Sumlin, who was fired last weekend.

KPRC Sports Director Randy McIlvoy is reporting that Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher coming to coach at Texas A&M is a "done deal."

McIlvoy says that the deal is worth $7.5 million annually, and that the length is "likely" ten years. McIlvoey was one of the first to report that the Aggies were going after Fisher, which has been confirmed by virtually every college reporter to ever report on the sport. Stay tuned. This could be the biggest college football coaching news of what has already been a crazy carousel.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher said that "no decision has been made" regarding his coaching future with the team.

After a week of heavy rumors regarding Fisher and Texas A&M, the head coach finally weighed in when he spoke on SiriusXM ESPN U radio on Thursday. While Fisher is not yet ready to publicly announce a decision, indications at this point have him moving on to the Aggies -- 247Sports earlier reported that there is a "strong belief" within the program that Fisher will bolt. Additionally, ESPN's Mark Schlabach has passed along that FSU officials have become increasingly weary of the limbo that Fisher has put them in and would like a definitive answer as soon as possible. While it looked like a decision would come on this whole brouhaha by the end of Thursday, during his interview, Fisher said that he will be "coaching through [Saturday's game against UL-Monroe]."

247Sports' Chris Nee reports that there is a "strong belief within the hierarchy at FSU" that HC Jimbo Fisher will leave for the open position at Texas A&M.

All signs are pointing toward a definitive answer from Fisher at some point on Thursday. ESPN's Mark Schlabach is reporting that Seminole officials are beginning to grow impatient with the uncertainty here -- it probably doesn't help that three recruits decommitted on Wednesday due in part to the rumors surrounding Fisher -- and would like an answer as soon as possible. Florida State still has one game remaining on the regular-season schedule (against UL-Monroe on Saturday), but it sounds like if Fisher's going to bolt, it may well happen before that contest kicks off. We'll pass along updates as they become available in this developing story. Oregon HC Willie Taggart is reportedly FSU's top target should Fisher leave for College Station.

According to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, FSU officials are urging head coach Jimbo Fisher to make up his mind regarding his future with the school.

Schlabach calls a potential deal with Texas A&M "lucrative." It would have to be, as the jump from FSU to the Aggies would be viewed as a drop in job status. One reason why Jimbo might be waiting to make his announcement is due to the Seminoles still having one game left on their regular season schedule.

During FSU HC Jimbo Fisher's weekly call-in show, a fan in the audience asked the coach about loyalty to the team and was subsequently escorted out.

Fisher fielded questions from callers -- those were screened -- and the audience for about 45 minutes without any inquiries into the rumors regarding his potential flight for Texas A&M. Then, one brave audience member stepped to the mike and asked, "Where's the loyalty, Jimbo?" after which the microphone was wrenched from his hand. He was then immediately escorted out. The rest of the call-in show went off without further questioning of loyalty or the Aggies. Read into all of this what you will.

Rivals' Mark Passwaters reports that "FSU sources" expect Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M’s head coaching job.

There's been smoke around this rumor all month, with the Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman reporting in early November that the Aggies were interested in pursuing Fisher. Over the past 48 hours, those rumors have become more frenetic. The Texas A&M Board of Regents have scheduled a special Thursday meeting to discuss the coaching search. The Aggies dismissed Kevin Sumlin on Sunday.

Florida State is expected to reschedule their canceled game against ULM for December 2.

This game was not expected to be played, so some are concluding it will only happen in the hopes of the 3-5 Seminoles becoming bowl eligible. The game was originally set for September 9.
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 11:32:00 AM

The Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman told ESPN's Paul Finebaum that Texas A&M has interest in hiring Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher's Florida State squad sits at just 3-5 on the season, but this subpar, injury-riddled campaign has done little to dim his luster as an ace recruiter and coach. For the time being, Aggies HC Kevin Sumlin remains at the helm of the Texas A&M ship. He's guided them to a 5-4 record for the campaign. You can expect to hear Fisher's name brought up a fair amount once the coaching carousel starts up in earnest at the end of the season.

An announcement as to whether Florida State and UL-Monroe will make up their canceled September 9 contest is expected within the next week.

The game was washed out by Hurricane Irma. If they're to reschedule the contest, it would likely be played on December 2. That day is normally reserved for conference championship games, but neither the Seminoles (2-5) nor the Warhawks (3-5) are in any sort of position to play in such a game -- hence essentially making it a workable open date. Tallahassee's Winter Festival takes place on that December 2 date and could potentially prove to be a logistical hurdle depending on whether or not there is enough law enforcement available for the football game.
