There’s no going back now. At a press conference on Monday morning, Texas A&M officially announced Jimbo Fisher as the 29th head coach of the Aggie football program, signing him to a 10-year, $75 million contract.

Notable quotes:

“You can Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Chuck Knoll, you can have the greatest coaches in the world. But if your administration doesn’t see things the way you see things, and allow you to do things that way, noting can be achieved.”

“Success doesn’t happen by accident, and you either live in vision, or you live in circumstance.”

“Our players, I want them to understand the two most important abilities I want them to leave our organization with: accountability and dependability. If you’re accountable and dependable, and you develop the right habits as a person, everything else will fall into place.”

“Culture is the most important thing any university can have, any program can have, any organization can have. Because it’s the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you think, and being here, I don’t have to tell y’all that. There’s no doubt, it’s everything I envisioned and more; the amount of pride in which I see people in this school. They told me when I got here, ‘It’s going to be different.’ And you know I say that, you hear that everywhere, you really do. You hear those statements everywhere you go. I feel it though, I really do. And I see it.”

“People say ‘what attracted you to Texas A&M?’ and first and foremost it was Scott Woodward. and as he told me his vision for his place, the presisdent’s vision, the chancellor’s vision, the Board of Regents, it was a no-brainer.”

“I understand respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service are the six core values of Texas A&M. Our program will reflect these, our players will reflect these, our staff will reflect these, I will reflect these.”

“We have a process, and you’re going to hear me say this word a hundred times. It’s not about the outcome, it’s about the process. If the process of how you do your business and what your’e doing is right, the outcomes will be there. Sometimes we get results that don’t come from the right process, and you can’t sustain those.”

“I am a boot guy.”
