The Texas A&M Aggies made the decision to fire head coach Jimbo Fisher despite being on the hook for nearly $80 million. And by doing that, they made him a hero to legendary coach Lou Holtz...
quote:

"But the $77 million, that’s an awful lot of money. I’ve got Jimbo Fisher’s picture above my bed," he said with a chuckle. "He’s my hero. He loses and gets $77 million to walk away. I never got a cent from any of the six schools where I coached when I left there. So, he is my hero. That’s great work."

"There is nothing at A&M that keeps them from competing for the national championship. They have a beautiful stadium, a great facility and an awful lot of money. They also have a tremendous student body," Holtz said.

Coach Holtz is 86 and has $20 million. I'm guessing he has enough to reach the finish line.

That was not shade at Jimbo. Notre Dame asked him to leave to save a previous coaches win record.
He's a bit upset at all the money thrown into the fire that he didn't get.

They're could be 100 comments under this past and this one will still have the most downvotes.

He did a thing on CBS, if I recall, like Lou's Take or Lou's Thoughts, something like that. That was pretty decent.
