Marcus Spears considers Jimbo Fisher’s addition as huge for Texas A&M’s future.
Recently, the SEC Network analyst spoke with TexAgs’ Gabe Bock and touched on a number of Fisher-related items. In part of the discussion, Spears told Bock that Fisher will change the culture in College Station and that Texas A&M will become “a totally different team from a competition standpoint.”
There are many observers who will be curious to see how Fisher fares with the Aggies. He arrives in College Station after posting an 83-23 record with 1 national championship at Florida State from 2010-17.
You can see the full nugget from Spears below, as relayed by Brock:
I think Jimbo Fisher has done a wonderful job recruiting. He finished this class out and got a lot of guys that are going to be game changers. The most important thing is the mentality. The past few years, the talent that was available at Texas A&M was not matching the results. Jimbo is going to change the culture and bring a tough, hard-nose mentality to this football program. He wants to win by being smart, physical and making sure the opponent understands that they are in the dog fight. This is going to be a totally different team from a competition standpoint and I’m really excited about it.
To be sure, there will be high expectations for Fisher at Texas A&M. After all, you don’t arrive with a 10-year, $75 million contract and not face immediate pressure.
Still, it’s fair to assume the best of the Fisher era at Texas A&M won’t happen in coach’s first year there. Given Fisher’s past, he’ll likely leave his footprint on the Aggies’ program in time. Many Texas A&M fans are counting on him to do so.
