Texas A&M Parts Ways with Head Coach Jimbo Fisher After Dominant Victory
In a surprising move, Texas A&M has decided to part ways with head coach Jimbo Fisher, despite the team’s dominant 51-10 victory over Mississippi State last Saturday. This decision comes with a hefty price tag, as the Aggies will have to pay Fisher a whopping $76.8 million buyout.
The Aggies’ decision to let go of Fisher stems from their desire to find a head coach who can lead them to a berth in the College Football Playoff. Texas A&M has not won double-digit games in a season since 2012 and is desperate to break free from mediocrity. Athletic Director Ross Bjork will now embark on a search to find a coach who can elevate the program to new heights.
The Texas A&M coaching search has attracted attention from game-changers within the college football landscape, including coaches from SEC rivals and teams currently competing for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

With his previous experience as Texas A&M’s defense coordinator from 2018 to 2021, Elko brings a direct tie to the Aggies and a proven track record in building a dominant defense.
Another intriguing name on the list is Lane Kiffin, the current head coach at Ole Miss. Kiffin boasts an impressive 31-15 record at Ole Miss, with the team’s only losses this season coming against powerhouses Alabama and Georgia.
