LSU has hired Brian Kelly to be its new football coach, but it turns out he wasn't their No. 1 option. Nope, instead, it looks like the Tigers were ready to try and land Jimbo Fisher from Texas A&M.

Fisher decided that he wasn't ready to leave the Aggies just yet, though, and he's staying put. So, just how bad did LSU want him? Per a report, they were ready to make him an unreal offer.

Whoa, $13 million a year and $125 million total to coach LSU? Most people would have jumped at that. For Fisher, though, it's clear he wants to see things out with Texas A&M.
