Five-star Isaac Taylor-Stuart talks Texas A&M coaching change

Jimbo Fisher went from a $72000 salary to one of the highest-paid coaches in sports in 19 years

"I want to take Texas A&M to somewhere they haven't been and that's the champion of the SEC", Fisher said. Fisher especially was attracted to A&M because of Woodward, whom he had worked with before at LSU.

"I'm extremely grateful to be here at Texas A&M, and this is without a doubt one of college football's greatest sports venues and richest traditions", new Aggies Football Head Coach Jimbo Fisher announced.

"In the short amount of time that i've been here... the people here are incredible", Fisher said.

"We've got to get caught up", Fisher said in September.

When speaking about working with Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward, who helped sign Fisher to a 10-year, $75 million deal, the coach seemingly referenced his past friction with Florida State officials over trying to improve facilities for the Seminoles to help the program keep pace with other ACC powers.

A&M prides itself in being one of the friendliest campuses and universities in the world and according to Fisher, Texas A&M is second to none.

Jimbo Fisher finally made it official with his girlfriend Courtney.

Another factor that could be playing against Texas A&M as Taylor-Stuart's recruitment continues is that four-star defensive back Leon O'Neal recently de-committed from the Aggies. "There's a oneness to everything you do to be successful", Fisher said. Fisher and Woodward share a vision. "And I knew he had the same visions that I did".

A&M lured Fisher to A&M with a historic contract.

Young said he is always hesitant when he utilizes money from the university and its respective departments, regardless of the person. "That's certainly true of a coach, it's true when I hire an administrator, a professor, give scholarship money", Young said. It marked the end of a somewhat surprising divorce between Fisher and Florida State, after the coach went 83-23 with one national title in his eight years at the school.

"Your expectations will never be greater than mine", Fisher said.
