Jimbo Fisher is in the fourth year of a 10-year/$75 million fully guaranteed contract.
Fisher has not won a national championship at Texas A&M.
Fisher has not coached in the CFP at Texas A&M.
Fisher has not won the conference at Texas A&M.
Fisher has not won the division at Texas A&M.
So, naturally, this is happening.
Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher has seven years remaining on his contract paying him $7.5 million annually. A&M believes that is not enough on both counts following a successful first three seasons under the former Florida State coach.
A&M will soon announce a contract extension and raise for Fisher, according to university insiders, after the Aggies (9-1) were No. 4 in last season’s final Associated Press poll, their highest finish since winning their lone national title in 1939.
A&M will add three years to Fisher’s contract to put it back to 10 years remaining and he will make about $9 million annually, according to an insider with knowledge of the process. Based on the updated contract, which is expected to easily receive A&M regents’ approval, Fisher would trail only mentor Nick Saban of Alabama (recently raised to an average of $10.6 million through 2028 season) when the ink dries in College Station, according to a USA Today database.
Bidding against themselves.
Okay, the header is a joke. But… if I did post a conference power poll today, I’d rank Jimmy Sexton number one.
