Texas A&M AD: Football program ‘stuck in neutral’ under Fisher

Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork discusses his decision to part ways with football coach Jimbo Fisher.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — With the 7-2 Detroit Lions off to their best start since 2014, coach Dan Campbell has no interest in jumping ship, not even for his alma mater Texas A&M.

Following the firing of Jimbo Fisher, Campbell revealed that he “maybe” was approached for the head-coaching position at Texas A&M, but he is content in his current role and has no intention of leaving.

“Maybe. But that’s all good. Certainly, I know some people there and I love my school,” Campbell said during Friday’s practice. “That’s my alma mater and I want to do anything I can to help them but coach for them. So, and I’ll do that.”

Campbell, now in his third season as coach, has successfully led the Lions to the top of the NFC North division standings.

During his college years, he was a standout player for the Aggies, where he excelled academically while majoring in agricultural development.

Despite declining the coaching opportunity at A&M, he advised the school to hire someone who understands the program well and is dedicated to mentoring the athletes.

“Look, I don’t want to get into all that,” he said. “Certainly, the hire is important, and it needs to be somebody that understands the state of Texas, understands the history of Texas A&M and can communicate with young people and develop them. I think that’s where it starts. Strong leadership.”

Detroit is set to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday, with a chance to achieve their best 10-game start since 1962.
