Jimbo Fisher welcomed to Texas A&M in 'Aggie' style

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) -- Jimbo Fisher has set his feet in Aggieland after days of speculation of his arrival to become Texas A&M's 29th head football coach.

He showed up in typical Aggie fashion with a 'Maroon Carpet' rolled out and the Aggie Band playing at Easterwood Airport.

Fisher comes to Aggieland after 8 seasons at Florida State where he produced an overall record of 83-23 including the 2013 National Championship. He has five bowl wins and three ACC Championships under his belt.

An introductory press conference has been announced from 10am on Monday at the A&M Hall of Champions at Kyle Field.


Fisher has won five bowl games, including the 2013 National Championship and two Orange Bowl titles. He has the highest winning percentage in ACC history (.821) and his 78 total wins are the most by a Power Five coach through their first seven seasons in modern history. Fisher leads all active coaches in wins per season (11.1) and guided the Seminoles to three consecutive ACC Championships from 2012-2014, winning a school- and ACC-record 29 straight games in the process.
