College football fans are calling for a national championship-winning head coach to be fired following a disastrous start to the 2023 season. The Texas A&M Aggies started the year ranked 17th but quickly fell out of the polls and are currently sitting with a 5-4 record after losing to Ole Miss on Saturday.
The Aggies were hoping to bounce back from a horrific 5-7 campaign in 2022. They had high expectations to start last season, as they were ranked 6th to start the season.
Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher is taking most of the blame from fans. Fisher is 44-24 during his six seasons as the Aggies head coach. That’s unacceptable for a coach who is the eighth-highest-paid coach ($9.1 million per year) in the country.

Aggies fans took to X to vent their feeling on Fisher. Many fans think the school should eat the $76 million buyout to move on from a coach who won the national championship with Florida State in 2013. A report recently came out that the school would look at removing Fisher if the team didn’t improve this season.
Texas A&M lost their third game in four tries against Ole Miss on Saturday. They had a chance to win the game, as they held the lead with a few minor to play in the fourth quarter. But the Aggies defender gave up a touchdown and had their final offensive play of the game ended with a blocked field goal to lose 38-35.
Aggies fans are furious. Here are the best takes on Texas A&M fans wanting Fisher ousted.

Firing Jimbo Fisher only rewards his incompetence. He does not deserve to be rewarded for being such an embarrassment. There must be something in his contract that forces him to stay at A&M while eliminating his ability to engaged at coaching.

There should be a running “Jimbo Fisher Buyout Counter” in College Station like the National Debt Clock, so we know where we’re at after every one of these losses.
