Jimbo Fisher Makes Significant Change To Coaching Staff

Texas A&M pulled off a shocking upset of then-No. 5 LSU on Saturday, snapping a six-game losing streak.

But that wasn't enough to quell the concerns around Jimbo Fisher's program after the Aggies, who were ranked No. 6 in the preseason, finished the year 5-7.

On Monday, Fisher made his first change to his staff as a result.

Sam Khan Jr. of the Athletic reported that Texas A&M has parted ways with offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Darrell Dickey. 

Dickey came to Texas A&M with Fisher in 2018 and has served as the offensive coordinator ever since. He coached the team's quarterbacks prior to this season, when Fisher shifted him to the tight end room.

"Texas A&M has made its first coaching staff move of the offseason," Khan tweeted. "Offensive coordinator/tight ends coach Darrell Dickey is out, according to a source. Dickey joined Jimbo Fisher’s staff in 2018 as OC/QBs coach. Moved to TE this summer."

While Texas A&M almost certainly can't afford to fire Fisher due to the 10-year, $95 million, fully-guaranteed contract he signed in 2021, staff shakeups were expected following the Aggies' struggles this season.

One of the most popular calls from the Texas A&M fanbase has been for Fisher to relinquish play-calling duties. The dismissal of Dickey could clear the way for that, as Fisher might target an offensive coordinator who could call plays for the team next season.

Texas A&M ranked 95th out of 131 FBS teams in total offense this season and 101st in scoring.

All eyes will be on College Station to see who Fisher hires as his offensive coordinator and whether more staff changes follow.
