Jimbo Fisher responds to being linked to LSU job opening
Since the news broke that Ed Orgeron would not return to LSU after this season, Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher has been a popular name in connection with the Tigers’ impending coaching opening.
Fisher was on LSU’s staff from 2000-06, the first 4 years with Nick Saban, as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, so he is quite familiar with Baton Rouge
On Monday, during his weekly press conference, Fisher was asked about his name being brought up in connection with the LSU job.
While he didn’t offer an outright denial of interest, Fisher made it clear that he’s happy at Texas A&M and plans on being in College Station for a while.
“I love it here,” Fisher said. “I plan on being here and fulfilling my contract. I love everything about this place. I love being at A&M.”
