Jimbo Fisher is reportedly going to be out as Texas A&M football head coach and here are the top five candidates to replace him.
After what seems like years on the hot seat, Texas A&M football is ready to move on from Jimbo Fisher according to multiple reports.
The Aggies are fresh off a blowout win over Mississippi State which improved their record overall to 6-4 on the season, but that’s not good enough for what Jimbo Fisher is being paid by Texas A&M football.
Fisher was hired away from Florida State to win a national championship or at least compete for one and the Aggies haven’t sniffed an SEC West title, let alone the College Football Playoff or the national championship.
Texas A&M football had one 10-win season under Jimbo. His tenure has been an epic failure and here are five candidates to replace him as the Aggies coach.
Dan Lanning, Oregon
This would be my first call and Pete Thamel of ESPN reports that Lanning is on the wishlist for Texas A&M football.
It just makes so much sense. It would have to be handled delicately because the Oregon Ducks are in the midst of a national title chase.
However, Mario Cristobal was too a couple of years ago and Miami was able to get him. Oregon is moving to the Big Ten which will help, but Lanning feels like an SEC guy to me.
He’s an elite recruiter and a great defensive mind. The Aggies could use that, plus Nick Saban and Kirby Smart are defensive guys.
If Texas A&M football wants a home run, make Dan Lanning the highest-paid coach in college football and maybe they can steal him away from Eugene.
