Jimbo Fisher speaks about taking time off, plans for coaching future
Jimbo Fisher wants to get back into coaching eventually, but not in the near future.
Fisher joined “Pardon My Take” recently to discuss his future coaching endeavors. He was fired after beating Mississippi State earlier this season. The Aggies have since hired former assistant Mike Elko in Fisher’s place.
The former Texas A&M head coach is taking things slow at the moment and seeing loved ones. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that fans could see him on the sidelines coaching again.
“I’m gonna let it settle right now and spend some time with my family. I actually got to see my son play his last 4 high school football games. They got to the state semifinals. It was great because you’re missing that all the time working on our foundation,” said Fisher. “Just getting to spend some time with him and normal life, it does feel weird. I mean, you were working 14 or 18-hour days. Every morning you wake up and go, ‘What do I want to do today?’ I said, ‘Whatever the hell I want.’ It’s a weird deal, but eventually you’ll want to get back into it.”
Jimbo Fisher says he plans to take some time off coaching, but seems open to a return at some point.
“Eventually, that time and what you do – you’ll wanna get back into it.”
