Texas A&M officially introduces Jimbo Fisher as new head coach

Getting to know more about Fisher in the coming weeks will be crucial if the Aggies want to stay in this one.

"There are very few places in America that I would have left Florida State for, and Texas A&M is at the top", Fisher said in an earlier statement.

Fisher said he was excited and thankful to be in College Station due to his longstanding admiration for the university and its traditions. According to Texas A&M chancellor John Sharp, yes, there are regrets, but not for the reasons one would think.

Great Game: Chabahar Port brings Iran and Afghan closer to India
Transport Minister Abbas Akhoundi said Chabahar on the Gulf of Oman will "soon become an important commercial hub for Iran". But Beijing's exports to the region are somewhere around $20 billion, compared to India accounting $950 million in 2016.


Why leave that? Well, Fisher - after being presented with a brand new maroon blazer - said Monday he wasn't looking to leave FSU, but the opportunity presented by A&M athletic director Scott Woodward, who Fisher worked with at LSU, was one he "just couldn't pass up". The Trojans have been recruiting Taylor-Stuart for a long while and he's been to campus multiple times including a recent trip to The Coliseum for a game.

Fisher signed a 10-year contract worth $75 million.

Texas A&M, which moved to the SEC in 2012, is 25-23 in the conference, including 19-21 since going 6-2 in its first season. "You can have Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll - you can have the greatest coaches in the world". There's a oneness to everything you do to be successful. Fisher and Woodward share a vision. "And I knew he had the same visions that I did".

The $20 billion Barakah nuclear power plant, being built with help from South Korea, is near Abu Dhabi's border with Saudi Arabia. The claim comes as the United Arab Emirates, which is part of the Saudi-led coalition, celebrates its National Day.


During his introductory press conference, Fisher was asked what he considered a reasonable timetable to transform A&M's football program good to great. "That's certainly true of a coach, it's true when I hire an administrator, a professor, give scholarship money", Young said.

With Fisher's resume including a national title win at Florida State, he's ready to tackle that goal at College Station.

An FSU fan questioned coach Jimbo Fisher's loyalty to the Seminoles and was kicked out of the radio show audience Thursday night.
