Texas A&M fans, alumni, administration members, business tycoons, and oil money have had enough of Jimbo Fisher at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.

After five seasons, the Aggies are expected to fire Coach Fisher.

Billy Liucci, the executive editor and co-owner of TexAgs, broke the news on Fisher.

He was hired in 2018 to coach the Aggies and has produced a 45-25 record. Fisher signed a 10-year, $75 million contract and also earned an extension, but never delivered the Aggies to a 10-win season. He beat his former boss, Nick Saban, one time during his tenure in Aggieland. Fisher earned a 41-38 victory over Alabama in 2021 at Kyle Field. Texas A&M earned the No. 1 recruiting class in the spring of 2022; however, the Crimson Tide defeated the Aggies in 2022 and this season. Jalen Milroe, a native Texan, had one of his best games of the year versus Texas A&M. He totaled 321 passing yards and three touchdowns for the Crimson Tide in a 26-20 comeback victory. The firing of Fisher affects Alabama because Saban can get the best talent in Texas away from the A&M program. Texas A&M also does not know if its next coaching hire can defeat Saban as often as it needs to stay there.
