Jimbo Fisher is the Head Coach for the Texas A&M Aggies.
Prior to joining the Aggies in December of 2017, he led Florida State University to a national championship in 2013.
Jimbo played Quarterback in college and in 1987 at Samford he was named NCAA Division III’s national player of the year.
Coach Fisher returned Samford as a grad assistant/quarterbacks coach in 1988 before earning a promotion to offensive coordinator in 1991. He followed Terry Bowden to Auburn in 1993 and stayed there for six seasons before becoming offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Cincinnati in 1999.
In 2000, Fisher joined Nick Saban’s staff at LSU as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. LSU made seven consecutive bowl appearances, won two SEC titles, went 70-20 and won the 2003 national championship while Fisher was the Tigers’ offensive coordinator. Fisher was a finalist for 2001 Frank Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation’s top assistant coach.
Fisher developed a reputation as a perceptive play-caller and a quarterback whisperer.
In 2007, Fisher joined Bobby Bowden’s staff at Florida State as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was tabbed as Bowden’s eventual successor by the end of his first season in Tallahassee. Fisher impacted FSU’s recruiting and its offensive play during his three seasons as coordinator, with the Seminoles’ offense improving statistically each season.
Then in 2010 Coach Fisher became Head Coach at Florida State University after Bobby Bowden retired.
The 2013 season was historic as the Seminoles set the national record for points in a season (723) in route to winning the National Championship.
