Jimbo Fisher is well-off following his firing at Texas A&M.
College Station, TX – The Jimbo Fisher era at Texas A&M has officially been put out of its misery. After compiling a 45-25 record in just under six seasons, the university cut ties with the West Virginia native on Sunday afternoon.

For any Mountaineer fans that have been clamoring for Fisher to find his way to Morgantown, it is hard to fathom that money will be at the forefront of his mind. If he wants to come home, he can come home without making WVU break the bank.
However, there are many dominoes that would have to fall for that to happen.
