College football fans think Texas A&M should give a call to an NFL head coach to replace Jimbo Fisher after the school announced Fisher’s firing Sunday morning. Texas A&M will have an early head start to find their next head coach after Fisher’s mid-November firing.
Most suggestions for Texas A&M’s next head coach come from the college realm, and many in the Aggies fanbase want the school to go after SEC rival head coach Lane Kiffin. However, rumors about the New England Patriots Sunday have some Aggies fans thinking the school could go after Bill Belichick.
Bill Belichick is rumored to be fired shortly
The Patriots were rumored to possibly fire Belichick following Sunday’s game in Germany if New England didn’t improve to 3-7. They lost an ugly 10-6 game to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday morning.
One would think Belichick, a six-time Super Bowl-winning head coach, would be able to find a job in the NFL. However, some owners of top NFL jobs this offseason could pass over the 71-year-old head coach because of his age and the fact that it’s clear Tom Brady was the cause of much of Belichick’s success in New England.
So would Belichick consider Texas A&M? The school has the money to pay Belichick what he was making in New England. The Aggies are giving Fisher around $75-80 million for his buyout.
Money might not be an issue for Belichick going to Texas A&M, but a college job would be a major transition for a coach in his 70s. He’s never had a college coaching job, but Belichick grew up in a college football family. Belichick studied football with his father, Steve Belichick, an assistant at Navy.
If Texas A&M were to hire Belichick, the Aggies’ rivalry with Alabama would take on greater meaning. Alabama head coach Nick Saban was Belichick’s defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns.

Texas A&M, who has never won an SEC division title, has some astonishing delusions of grandeur, and thus I fully expect them to make a run at every damn coach. Hey, Belichick is a Navy guy, maybe he’ll like our military tradition!
