Jimbo Fisher's vision, process find ideal fit at Texas A&M

As Fisher approached the podium for the first time to speak since he resigned from Florida State last Friday, he greeted those in attendance with an resonating "Howdy".

Fisher was introduced to A&M as the head coach of the football program in the Hall of Champions within Kyle Field by A&M System Chancellor John Sharp, Board of Regents chairman Charles W. Schwartz, University President Michael K. Young and Woodward.

"I think it was a no-brainer, in a insane way", Fisher said. "We're going to be driven to be the very best every day".

No state-appropriated funds will be used to pay the coach's salary, the school announced. There will be some who are retained but new faces will join Fisher perhaps from Florida State.

"I say this all the time in coaching", Fisher said. "And again, my time at Florida State, I loved it". "You can have Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll - you can have the greatest coaches in the world". "I don't know if I've been around a nicer group of people who are professional and make you feel more welcome".

Texas A&M fired Kevin Sumlin on November 26, one day after the Aggies ended their regular season with a 7-5 mark following a 45-21 setback to LSU. "But I wish coach Sumlin stayed".

"Today, I stand you with proof that Texas A&M is an opportunity for greatness", Woodward said. "And I am confident that the opportunity for greatness is right around the corner".

Fisher acknowledged the challenge of the Southeastern Conference West division, which includes Alabama, Auburn and LSU. Texas A&M has its man.

Woodward said by bringing Fisher to A&M that is just another confirmation that Aggieland has was it takes to do so. "We understand everything that goes with it". "That's where we want to be and what we want to be and advance to the national championship and how we do it. I think all the ingredients are here".

"Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden".

Taylor-Stuart and O'Neal, among other Texas A&M commits, struck up a friendship during the summer camp circuit and it could have been helpful to Taylor-Stuart to have O'Neal in College Station.

Fisher won three ACC titles and a national championship at Florida State, but he lamented the football facilities at FSU on multiple occasions. "His experience in the Southeastern Conference; his knowledge of the game; his recruiting acumen, and his management skills will allow him to achieve the highest levels of success when matched with what A&M offers".

Fisher will not coach in the Aggies' Belk Bowl game against Wake Forest in Charlotte, N.C., on December 29.
