USATODAY: Texas A&M prepared to pursue Jimbo Fisher

LINK

quote:

Texas A&M is expected to inquire about the interest level of Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher once its separation from current coach Kevin Sumlin is official at the end of the season, according to two people familiar with the situation.

Those people spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because Texas A&M has not made an announcement on Sumlin’s future and due to the sensitivity of the matter.

Though Fisher has never given serious consideration to leaving Florida State previously, rebuffing interest from LSU the last two years, one person close to Fisher pointed to his longstanding relationship with Texas A&M athletics director Scott Woodward and the current disappointing season at Florida State as reasons why Texas A&M’s pursuit might be more realistic.

Woodward arrived as an administrator at LSU in 2000, the same year Fisher was hired there as offensive coordinator under Nick Saban. They have remained in touch and friendly over the years, according to a person familiar with Fisher’s thinking.

Pursuing Fisher would make sense for Texas A&M, which has shown a willingness to spend big money to reach the elite level of college football. Beyond Fisher, who won a national title in 2013, there are few, if any, candidates for the job who would be a guaranteed upgrade over Sumlin.

nope

spoken like a true Ag

A&M has been trying to toss money around to become elite for decades. Offered Schembechler and Cholly Mac a million bucks back when that was a boatload to get them to come.

Even if you got someone to take your money they'd find A&M is where they are for a reason. Little bro school no matter how far they run away from UT. Aesthetically ugly place. Small time mentality despite their big dreams.

IF aTm gets Jimbo and UF gets Chip Kelly the year after LSU hires O...i may camp out at the LSU AD building to throw rocks at Alleva's car.

There is nothing worth an actual response there

Fsu may not fight as hard to keep him this time. But as we found out it's extremely hard to lure a successful coach away.

What was LSU's place after hiring a position coach that was 8-28 as a head coach

~top 10 all time program

He's already won almost triple the SEC games here he won at Ole Miss. We're going to have a winning season with Ed Orgeron as our head coach.

Throw rocks at yourself if you want Kelly.
