The word, ‘championship’ was thrown around with regularity on Monday in Texas A&M’s Hall of Champions as Jimbo Fisher was introduced as the program’s 29th head coach.
Fisher signed a 10-year 75 million-dollar contract, that is fully guaranteed. Number like that show A&M and their commitment to fielding a winning football team and that’s just fine with the new head coach.
“We’re going to be driven to be the best every day,” Fisher said. “When good enough becomes good enough we have a problem. Good enough can never become good enough.”
Fisher met with his players on Tuesday and wanted them to understand the process and what it takes to make those championship dreams a reality.
“There’s a way in which we have to do things, but, it’s going to be a comprehensive way that is conducive for them to have success,” he said. “So They can have the experience here at Texas A&M that they wanted to have, and to walk away here, champions.”
A&M’s last conference championship came as a member of the Big 12 in 1998, their last national championship came in 1939.
