Texas A&M officially introduces Jimbo Fisher as new head coach

Texas A&M University chancellor John Sharp listens to a press conference with the new head football coach Jimbo Fisher at the school's Hall of Champions at Kyle Field Monday Dec. 4 2017 in College Station

So, do the Aggies regret anything about the massive contract? "You can have Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll - you can have the greatest coaches in the world". He has left Florida State University to become the next football coach at Texas A&M, and signed the richest contract in college football history, a 10-year deal worth a reported $75 million, fully guaranteed.

"I want to take Texas A&M to somewhere they haven't been and that's the champion of the SEC", Fisher said.

Wilcox also had kind words for Fisher, who finished his FSU career with an 83-23 record, the 2013 national championship, three conference titles and 42 players selected in the NFL draft. "I think it was a no brainer in a insane way".

"But in our life, there's opportunities out there you see". I had no plans on leaving there, had no plans on ever leaving there.

Why leave that? Well, Fisher - after being presented with a brand new maroon blazer - said Monday he wasn't looking to leave FSU, but the opportunity presented by A&M athletic director Scott Woodward, who Fisher worked with at LSU, was one he "just couldn't pass up".

Florida State improved to.500 for the first time this season, and is eligible to extend the nation's longest bowl streak to 36 years after a 42-10 victory over Louisiana Monroe on Saturday afternoon in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Sub-zero weather bomb could bring snow storms
Fog shouldn't be as widespread but some patchy dense areas will be possible through sunrise as temperatures start off in the 60s. Highs will be generally in the 40s for area along I-20 and to the north, with 50s for the southern counties of the state.

"You have to be one".

"That's the objective", Fisher said. We did when we first got here.

Of the over 80 wins during his time leading FSU football, which ones were the cream of the crop when it came to the Jimbo Fisher era?

Of course you guys remember that Candi Fisher, Jimbo's ex, reportedly had a little extramarital fun and led to the couple divorcing a few years ago.

During his introductory press conference, Fisher was asked what he considered a reasonable timetable to transform A&M's football program good to great.
