With rumors swirling about Kevin Sumlin’s job security, there’s been a lot of smoke about who could potentially replace him. And one name that pops up a lot is Jimbo Fisher.
And one ESPN insider, Chris Low, think A&M is going to come hard for Fisher’s services.
“I think A&M is going to make Jimbo a lucrative offer. I think they’re gonna try and pay him close to what Saban money is,” Low said on the Swain Event on Wednesday morning.
Getting a coach of Fisher’s caliber would be a great get for Texas A&M, though it would prove to be very, very expensive. Fisher has won a national title at Florida State, but his team has struggled this year, as it has a 4-6 record headed into the Florida game. Fisher was linked heavily to the LSU job a year ago, before turning it down.
Nick Saban is the highest paid coach in the country, making over $11 million a year.
Sumlin has not officially parted ways with Texas A&M, though there was a report that the school will move on from him following the LSU game. The Tigers and Aggies kickoff at 7:30 PM ET in Baton Rouge on Saturday.
