The Texas A&M Aggies made a big investment in former Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher this offseason, giving him a 10-year, $75 million contract.
However, Fisher still has his work cut out for him if he’s going to turn the Aggies into a program that can compete for SEC West titles on a yearly basis.
Former Auburn and Ole Miss coach Tommy Tuberville, who knows a thing or two about how tough the SEC West is, joined “Sports Talk with Bo Mattingly” on Wednesday and said he’s not sold on Fisher being able to turn Texas A&M around:
Tuberville on Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M: I don’t know how that’s going to fit. They’ve invested a lot of money, but money can’t buy you a college football program. It’s about stability.

Texas A&M had some good years under former coach Kevin Sumlin, but never reached an SEC Championship Game.
If Fisher can’t change that in his first few years in College Station, the Aggies may have to eat another massive contract.
