Jimbo Fisher: Move from Florida State to Texas A&M was 'no-brainer'

"There are very few places in America that I would have left Florida State for, and Texas A&M is at the top", Fisher said in an earlier statement.

But with so much success during his eight seasons at Florida State, why did Fisher want to leave that program for A&M?

"Today, I stand you with proof that Texas A&M is an opportunity for greatness", Woodward said. He had her pose with him and his boys for his first family photo as head coach at Texas A&M. Fisher said of FSU. Fisher especially was attracted to A&M because of Woodward, whom he had worked with before at LSU. "After Scott had contacted and I started to research and all the things it had here and the resources it had here and the vision it had here and the people it had here, from the President to the Chancellor to the Board of Regents and everyone together as a oneness".

Another factor that could be playing against Texas A&M as Taylor-Stuart's recruitment continues is that four-star defensive back Leon O'Neal recently de-committed from the Aggies.

"You can have the greatest coaches in the world, but if your administration doesn't see things the way you see things and allow you to do things that way, nothing can be achieved". "That's where we want to be, and what we want to be - and eventually to the National Championship".


Fisher said he was excited and thankful to be in College Station due to his longstanding admiration for the university and its traditions.

Fisher was lured away from Florida State, where he won a national championship in 2013, with a 10-year, $75 million contract at Texas A&M.

"When we set out to find a new leader of our proud football program, we set our sights high".

Woodward said the time for A&M to take the next step in regards to its future wasn't better than right now.

He's now the 29th head football coach in Aggie history....filling big boots of past legends like Bear Bryant and R.C. Slocum.
