This should come as no surprise. While I could make a realistic case for Ryan Day to make this list (honestly, I could), I think Jimbo Fisher is on one of the hottest seats in all of college football heading into the 2023 season.
Fisher was hired away from Florida State following a successful eight-year tenure with the Seminoles where he went 83-23 and won a national title in 2013.
Obviously, expectations were to compete for national titles yearly. All he needed was more support financially from the athletic department at Texas A&M and a bigger budget than what he got at Florida State. The Aggies promised him that.
And while he has everything he needs to succeed and has recruited at an elite level, his coaching tenure has been a massive disappointment. He’s just 39-21 in five seasons with the Aggies and he’s coming off a 5-7 campaign after landing the No. 1 recruiting class in the country which is just flat-out unacceptable. You cannot go 5-7 in year five after landing the best recruiting class in college football. Texas A&M fans wanted him out immediately.
But he’s back for at least one more year, but if Texas A&M doesn’t seriously compete for an SEC title this season, he could be on his way out sooner rather than later.
