Texas A&M is still all-in on the Jimbo Fisher era in Aggieland. The Houston Chronicle reports that Fisher is signing a deal that will extend his contract to 10 years and give the fourth-year head coach a $9 million annual salary. Fisher’s original deal back in 2018 was for 10 years and worth $75 million. The Aggie football program has obviously been pleased with Fisher’s production on Saturdays and wants to keep their head man for the long haul.

Fisher becomes the second-highest-paid coach in college football and the SEC. Of course, Fisher and the Aggies are still chasing Saban and Alabama to be the cream rising to the top in the SEC West. Fisher’s overall record at Texas A&M is 26-10, and given last year’s tough circumstances, the Aggies finished an outstanding 9-1. Their only loss coming to, you guessed it, Alabama. Fisher is a former National Championship winner and is ready to lead the Aggies to the promised land. Luckily he’ll have 10 years and Scrooge McDuck cash to help him along the way.
