Obviously, Fisher’s record speaks for itself. He won a national title while coaching at Florida State and he’s done very well with the Aggies.

In only a few short years, he turned them back into a team capable of competing with the best teams in America.

In the world of college football, there are only a handful of great coaches. When you find one, you do whatever it takes to keep him.

That’s exactly what the Aggies are doing with Fisher, and he’s about to make $9 million annually. That’s a whole lot of cash!

It also makes him the second highest-paid coach in America behind only Nick Saban, according to USA Today’s latest salary data.

Props to Fisher for getting a big extension and raise. Now, let’s see what he can do with the Aggies this season.
