Woodward said the time for A&M to take the next step in regards to its future wasn't better than right now.
"We've got to get caught up", Fisher said in September. Texas A&M has its man.
In 's first game after Jimbo Fisher's brewing departure for Texas A&M, the Seminoles relied on their collective pride to accomplish one of their seasonal goals to maintain the program's history. "It feels like I've been here for two years already".
"I want to take Texas A&M to somewhere they haven't been and that's the champion of the SEC", Fisher said. "You can have Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll - you can have the greatest coaches in the world". "There's a oneness to everything you to do be successful, and I knew he had the same vision I did". Fisher and Woodward share a vision. "When you get an offer like he got, you can't turn those things down. Your actions [traditions and culture] speak so loud I can't hear what everyone else is saying".
"I'm extremely grateful to be here at Texas A&M, and this is without a doubt one of college football's greatest sports venues and richest traditions", new Aggies Football Head Coach Jimbo Fisher announced.
A&M lured Fisher to A&M with a historic contract.
Fisher, who agreed to a 10-year, $75 million contract with the Aggies, cited his relationship with athletic director Scott Woodward and the school's resources as the main factors in his decision.
"Anytime is spend money on behalf of this university, there's a lot of nervousness", Young said. "But I wish coach Sumlin stayed". "None of this is state money, none of this is tuition money but nevertheless still a responsibility, to ensure that we're spending it in a place that brings the kind of excellences that the institution deserves". He led the Seminoles to the national championship in 2013, three Atlantic Coast Conference titles and four ACC Atlantic Division crowns. "I never really talked to him to be honest. I promise you that".
