Jimbo Fisher made a somewhat surprising decision when he chose to leave his job at Florida State to take on a new challenge at Texas A&M, but those who are familiar with the relationship between Fisher and his former bosses saw it coming.
"You can have the greatest coaches in the world, but if your administration doesn't see things in the way you see things, and allow you to do things that way, nothing can be achieved", Fisher said.
Fisher had an 83-23 with the Seminoles and won the 2013 BCS national championship with a 14-0 record. There will be some who are retained but new faces will join Fisher perhaps from Florida State. "And again, my time at Florida State, I loved it".
Texas A&M is known for its tradition and spirit, Fisher said as much as he heard about it from other people, there was nothing like experiencing it for himself. "And there was a commitment to excellence and there was a vision for what we wanted to do", Fisher said.
"I had no plans of ever leaving there", Fisher said. Woodward and Fisher overlapped at LSU from 2000-2004. "As I researched, I thought it was an opportunity I couldn't pass up and a challenge out there I just couldn't pass up".More news: It's here: Amazon finally launches in Australia
However, that night we didn't exactly get an introductory shot of Courtney. We made a few little adjustments.
Fisher said "all the ingredients (for success) are here" and mentioned Texas A&M's recruiting base, facilities and local support. "We've got to get caught up in that area". "There's a oneness to everything you do to be successful".
Another factor that could be playing against Texas A&M as Taylor-Stuart's recruitment continues is that four-star defensive back Leon O'Neal recently de-committed from the Aggies. According to Texas A&M chancellor John Sharp, yes, there are regrets, but not for the reasons one would think.
"Your expectations will never be greater than mine", Fisher said.
