Texas A&M head football coach Jimbo Fisher was in Austin Friday for the Capital City A&M Club Coaches night. There is a lot of excitement with the Texas A&M program as Fisher heads into his second season as the Aggies head coach.
This year Fisher will be working with a new athletic director. On May 23 Texas A&M announced Ross Bjork would be the university's new athletic director replacing Scott Woodward. On Friday Fisher was asked about his thoughts on Bjork. Fisher said, "Very excited about Ross. The communications I have had with him I love his vision for what the athletic department needs to be and how we can do it and where we are trying to go." Fisher added, "I think he has great people skills. He has done a great job fundraising. I think he has done a great job in the academic world and not just the athletic world of winning games but also building the complete student athlete, men and women in the athletic department and I think he has a great vision for our program."
Bjork will be officially introduced at Texas A&M on Monday.
