Texas A&M isn't having the season everyone expected, especially Aggies fans. Instead, he's compiled the same record as former A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, who was fired after a similar lack of success. ESPN's Paul Finebaum was asked if Fisher is on the hot seat following his poor start...
"Perceptively, it’s very hot, and think about a couple things — this is his fifth year and in the offseason, his bosses gave him a new contract and a raise and the buyout, should he be fired, is $90 million," Finebaum said this week.
"Jimbo Fisher is his own boss," Finebaum continued. He doesn’t report to anybody. He does whatever he wants. So if they should fire him, that’s a $90 million payday. Now, what has he done? At Texas A&M, on the field he really hasn’t done anything. He had one good year. He won 10 games and was fourth in the country during the Covid year and lost to Alabama by 28. He’ll have three losses after Saturday night...and his predecessor was fired with a better record than Kevin Sumlin has now.”
