Jimbo Fisher Gets Crushed For Skipping SEC Network Production Meeting

Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M Aggies Football

The 2022 season has been a disaster for Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M football team.

The Aggies' 3-4 start has resulted in some heat on Fisher. That's only going to increase after his latest move.

Fisher skipped his customary pre-production meeting with the SEC Network television crew that will call the Aggies' matchup against Ole Miss on Saturday, according to Brandon Zimmerman of ESPN.

"I don't know why, but I've been doing this for a minute, and that's the first time a head coach bailed on a production meeting," SEC Network commentator Tom Hart said.

If you're wondering why that's a big deal, consider that veteran play-by-play man Tom Hart said this is the first time he's ever had a coach completely bail on the meeting, which is standard procedure the day before a game.

Hart also noted that Fisher did not provide a reason for missing the meeting.

It would be one thing if Kirby Smart pulled this stunt. But it doesn't seem like a wise move for Fisher, who could use all the positive publicity he can get right now. 

Fisher's team is in the midst of a three-game losing streak. Earlier this week, Texas A&M suspended three players indefinitely, each of them highly-touted members of the Aggies' No. 1-ranked 2022 recruiting class.

Safe to say fans who were already unhappy with Fisher have latched onto Friday's news.

Fisher signed a 10-year, $95 million contract extension in 2021 that is fully guaranteed.

If he wants to coach out that contract in College Station, he needs to find a way to get things pointed back in the right direction soon.
