COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – An estimated crowd of 750 packed into the Hall of Champions at Kyle Field for the Brazos Valley A&M Club Coach's Night.

After dinner and a live auction to raise scholarship funds, Jimbo Fisher took his turn at the mic.

He opened with a "Howdy" then jokingly added he was still learning the other 311 traditions at Texas A&M.

Joking or not Fisher says he's loving learning more and more about Aggieland and going on the coaches night circuit is no chore at all.

Fisher said, "It's a great job, I love this part of the job. You're selling what you love, it's not a hard thing to do. It's also venues and places you haven't been and you're gonna have to get acquainted with them because you're going to be here a long time and you want to establish those relationships and understand the people and what everybody's little niche or why they love A&M. I think it's very important."

Fisher also joked in his speech he knew A&M was the place for him when Chancellor John Sharp put a big dip of Copenhagen in his lip before Jimbo's introductory press conference.

He also stated he was happy to have an auctioneer on stage before him to make it seem like he spoke slowly in comparison.

Next up on the coaches night tour is the Houston A&M Club on July 16.
