Texas A&M Football: Jimbo Fisher

The SEC has its share of great college football coaches. One of the best is Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher.

In Athlon Sports' SEC Coach Rankings, the Aggies' head coach is listed at No. 2, just behind Alabama coach Nick Saban. 

Here's why: Fisher’s first season in College Station was a success. Texas A&M lost by two to national champion Clemson in September and suffered road defeats against Auburn, Mississippi State and Alabama in SEC play. However, an entertaining win over LSU in overtime, along with a Gator Bowl victory over NC State, capped a four-game winning streak to end 2018. The winning streak pushed Texas A&M to 9-4 overall and a No. 16 finish nationally. The No. 16 ranking marked the Aggies first finish in the top 25 since 2013. Fisher came to College Station after winning 83 games and a national championship during an eight-year stint at Florida State. He’s 92-27 overall and has Texas A&M on the rise going into the 2019 season.
