Jimbo Fisher is not happy with how his players are portrayed in the media. This is ironic, considering he spends a lot of his time with complete control over exactly how his players are presented to the media.
After criticizing reporters' on this point, the highly-paid Texas A&M head coach was called out by someone whose career it is to cover his players.
Yeah, actually that’s false. And rich coming from someone who exercises a lot of control over how his players are presented to the media. https://t.co/J2PlgXoSqd— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) October 11, 2018
Fisher has made it a point throughout his career to limit the media's access to the young men he coaches. By doing this, he can't be surprised when their coverage of his players isn't exactly what he wants it to be. The tight-lipped facade he creates is responsible for the way his program and the people within it are represented or, in his opinion, misrepresented.
Side note: Jimbo Fisher is one of the worst CFB coaches when it comes to limiting media access.— Chris Yandle (@ChrisYandle) October 11, 2018
He’s like a Climate Change Denier and then when something happens, he can’t understand why...#Amateurism https://t.co/Kfww0wrJYp
Honestly, though, what else should fans expect from a guy who blatantly lied about an incident that was caught on camera? Clearly, Fisher isn't a big fan of the truth or anyone who can hold him accountable for his actions.
It's sad to see a powerful head coach pick on the media for doing their job, especially when it's a job that he makes harder every day.
