Former Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher is taking his time when it comes to getting back into coaching. After being fired in November and receiving a $77 million buyout, Fisher is enjoying his free time and focusing on other activities.
In a recent appearance on Pardon My Take, Fisher shared that he's been able to spend time with his family, including watching his son play high school football. He's also been working on the foundation for 'Kidz 1st Fun' and enjoying a sense of normalcy.
Despite his successful coaching career, which includes winning a national championship at Florida State in 2013, Fisher is in no rush to jump back into the coaching realm. He admits that it feels weird to wake up and have the freedom to do whatever he wants, without the demanding schedule of coaching.
While Fisher doesn't have a specific timeline for returning to coaching, he acknowledges that he will eventually want to get back into it when the right opportunity arises. Throughout his career, Fisher has proven himself as a skilled play caller and has a strong track record, including three ACC titles and an overall record of 128-48.
For now, Fisher is relishing in the downtime and is grateful for the chance to focus on his family and personal interests. When the time comes, he'll be ready to make a triumphant return to the sidelines.
