Texas No. 6 A&M and Jimbo Fisher have agreed a new contract extension that will keep the national championship winning coach at College Station during the 2030 season. The ten-year deal will pay Fisher a average of $ 9 million per season, according to Brent Zwerneman of Houston Chronicle.

An official announcement from the university is expected soon. Fisher confirmed the extension during Wednesday’s SEC conference call, and congratulated A&M’s athletic department for showing support and making the deal.

“It’s a tremendous organization with tremendous people who give us all the support [we need], ” Fisher said. “They’re 100% behind us. I’m very grateful for them and for everything they do for us, that’s for sure.”

The new deal replaces the previous $ 75 million $ 75 million contract the school gave Fisher when he hired him in 2018. Now, in his fourth year, Fisher occupies 26-10 with a record 17 -8 in the SEC, but includes a 9-1 projection in 2020 that put the Aggies on the edge of a college football playoff berth. A&M finished fifth in the final PCP rankings, at a Notre Dame spot, and defeated North Carolina in the Orange Bowl.

This is a huge compromise between Fisher and Texas A&M, who were picked second in the SEC West behind champion Alabama, despite aspirations for the national title. But Fisher is not paid to approach the PPC, he is paid to enter it. However, he has amassed the eighth most talented roster in the country according to the 247Sports team’s talent index, making a concerted effort to become bigger and more physical along the battle line. The influx of talent combined with last season’s success raised Fisher’s market value to the point that Texas A&M had to reward him.

Fisher is between 109 and 33 years old overall as head coach dating back to his time at Florida State. He took over the Seminoles program in 2010 after the retirement of Bobby Bowden and went from 83 to 23 in eight seasons, winning three ACC (2012-14) titles along with the 2013 national championship.

The Aggies will open their season at home Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET against Kent State
