Jimbo Fisher Is Reportedly OUT At Texas A&M

It finally happened. After six seasons of doing absolutely nothing, Jimbo Fisher has finally been fired by Texas A&M and will now collect a comically large buyout from his ridiculous contract.

The Fisher era at A&M will go down as one of the biggest failures in college football history. The school signed Fisher to a 10-year, $95 million fully guaranteed extension after his third year when he almost led the Aggies to the College Football Playoff in a fake season — and still couldn't even do that — and since then, Fisher compiled a record of 19-15 (10-13 SEC) to end his tenure with a worse record at A&M than Kevin Sumlin. Fisher also departs A&M having never won 10 games in a season, never winning the SEC West and never beating a ranked opponent on the road.

The good news for Jimbo is he now gets a $75 million check for sucking at his job, one of the coolest things that could ever happen to a human being. I don't know if another school will ever want to take a ride on the Jimbo Express again, but he doesn't need to blow another whistle. Hang it up and go enjoy life, pal. They have to pay you.

As for Texas A&M, I'm fascinated to see who they go after. Former Aggies defensive coordinator and current Duke head coach Mike Elko makes sense, but A&M has more money than God and is eager to spend it. They're going to take some massive swings.

I'd like to give an early congratulations to Lane Kiffin and Dan Lanning on their raises after turning down the A&M job. One thing you can't say about the Aggies is that they don't stimulate the economy.
