Texas A&M football‘s new head coach Jimbo Fisher has completed his staff, but questions abound concerning what year one will look like in College Station.

A regime change brings with it a whole new set of standards and expectations. Kevin Sumlin leaves College Station as once of the winningest coaches in Aggie history, but it was the month of November that proved to be his vice. Jimbo Fisher was brought in, not only because he can win in November, but because he’s been the last man standing and hoisted a National Championship trophy, something the Aggies haven’t done in an extremely long time.

As the season approaches questions continue to surface. The first major one was assumed to have been answered (save for a new defensive tackles coach) when Fisher completed his coaching staff with the hiring of defensive backs coach Maurice Linguist. He’ll take direction from Fisher and new defensive coordinator Mike Elko. Former Memphis offensive coordinator Darrell Dickey will be his counterpart on the offense.

The new coaching staff hit the recruiting trail hard and Aggies were forced to patiently wait for the returns. The 2018 recruiting class will be finalized on National Signing Day, but that doesn’t mean the wonder and expectation for the upcoming season will slow down.

Fisher was brought in to win championships. The expectations have never been higher at Texas A&M nor has the commitment to winning. With that in mind, what are the biggest questions facing Fisher and Texas A&M football in 2018?
