Jimbo Fisher jumped ship from the Florida State Seminoles to the Texas A&M Aggies in a shocking move. We all know that Fisher is expected to make $75 million over the next ten years, but the details of his current deal are eye-opening.
According to the Houston Chronicle, if Fisher were to walk away from Texas A&M for another job before his contract is up, he and his new employer would not owe the Aggies any money whatsoever.
Now we get to the insanity. If Texas A&M were to fire Fisher without cause, the university will owe everything left on his $75 million deal.
Jimbo will owe $0.00 if he leaves A&M but is owed every cent that is left on his $75 million contract if he is fired (without cause). https://t.co/DoEqpx2wzV— Matt Baker (@MBakerTBTimes) August 22, 2018
