After another loss, Aggies fans demand Jimbo Fisher’s removal, but financial hurdles may keep him in place. The Fisher era’s turmoil.
Texas A&M Aggies fans have grown increasingly frustrated with their head coach, Jimbo Fisher, in light of another disappointing loss, this time against the Tennessee Volunteers. The team’s 4-3 record in the 2023 season has left fans feeling pessimistic about their prospects.
The Fisher era at Texas A&M has, for many, been a letdown. Although there have been a few notable moments, the overall performance has been subpar. Fisher’s unpopularity among college football coaches is notable, and after the recent loss to Tennessee, fans are not merely asking but demanding that the Aggies part ways with Fisher.
One glaring statistic is Fisher’s 0-8 record on the road against ranked teams in the SEC since taking over in College Station. Despite Tennessee’s No. 19 ranking and a mere three-point favorite status, many Aggie fans perceive it as yet another loss.
However, the financial obstacle looms large; Texas A&M would owe Fisher nearly $80 million if they were to terminate his contract. This financial burden may mean that Aggie fans have no choice but to stick with him for now.
Some passionate fans have voiced their frustrations, with one saying, “Jimbo Fisher has to be fired,” and another adding, “Jimbo Fisher GOT to go.” Another fan emphasized the need for change, saying, “Please fire Jimbo Fisher now and don’t give the next guy $100 million guaranteed. The lack of discipline and the number of careless mistakes after 6 years as coach is unacceptable.”
