Texas A&M football continues to get closer and closer to making Jimbo Fisher their new head coach. Are the Aggies flying him to College Station Friday?
News broke late last night that an early morning flight was scheduled to depart Tallahassee for College Station. That flight has since been cancelled, but new reports from David Visser indicate that a new flight has been scheduled in its place for 12 p.m. local time. It’s route will be the same, Tallahassee, Fl to College Station, Tx.
The first flight was owned by a Texas A&M donor. The new flight is owned by Robert L. Albritton, chairman and CEO of Mayfair Investments and a member of the Texas A&M Board of Regents that spent Thursday afternoon in a special meeting where a new contract for the Aggies’ open head coaching position was drawn up.
Where there’s smoke there’s fire seems fitting for this situation. The odds of Fisher spurning the Aggies and returning to Florida State next year seem to diminish with every passing hour. Now there is a decent chance he’ll be in College Station on Friday afternoon. If that is the case, expect an announcement some time Friday evening.
Texas A&M has not wavered in their pursuit of Fisher. He’s been the only name mentioned out of the Aggies’ camp since they let Kevin Sumlin go on Sunday. Things continue to point to the process getting close to the end, but nothing is official until Fisher signs on the bottom line – hopefully soon. Fisher had previously said he intends to coach in Florida State’s final game of the regular season on Saturday. That might be hard to do from College Station.
