The Texas A&M Aggies have very expensive Jimbo Fisher problem on their hands, alright.

Nobody gets paid more to do less than Texas A&M Aggies head football coach Jimbo Fisher.

If there was ever proof that throwing money at a problem doesn’t solve it, Fisher would be just that. Despite making more money than god, the Aggies head coach has his team at 3-4 on the season, potentially not heading to a bowl game. Of course, Texas A&M still has UMass on the schedule, but good luck beating Ole Miss and LSU. The Aggies must beat Florida and Auburn now.

The snake oil is not curing what ails the Aggies, so oil magnates everywhere better start drilling.

I mean, how bad is it? Just look at what Fisher is slated to collect if he was bought out by A&M…

Jimbo Fisher buyout at Texas A&M

Because Fisher signed a fully-guaranteed contract extension in September of last year, his potential Texas A&M buyout is absolutely absurd. He is slated to make $95 million over the life of his contract which runs through 2031. If he were to be fired by the end of the season, you better start drilling, Gig Em Nation, as Fisher would collect $85.95 million. Surely, oil money can fix this…

If Daniel Plainview can drink Eli Sunday’s milkshake, Texas A&M can bring better boys to the yard.

Potential head-coaching candidates to replace Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M

839. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Tennessee Volunteers. player. 5. Offensive Coordinator. Alex Golesh

Tennessee’s rise to prominence has everything to do with Alex Golesh’s offense

Look. At this point, not even a potential Oklahoma vacancy could pry Josh Heupel out of Knoxville. He has the Tennessee football program humming in a way we have not seen since the peak Phillip Fulmer days. However, it might be time for us to seriously consider Vols offensive coordinator Alex Golesh for a Power Five gig of his own. Here is why prying Golesh away from Knoxville could work.

Tennessee plays in the same conference as Texas A&M, so recruiting is not going to be an issue for Golesh. Even if he does not have the presence or media mystique of Fisher, his team does run one of the most fun offenses in the country. Top-flight recruits would love to play in it, and many of these recruits happen to call College Station home already! There are worse candidates to be had.

As long as Tennessee keeps winning, somebody is going to hire Golesh to lead a Power Five team.
