West Virginia Native Jimbo Fisher Entertains Idea of Coaching at WVU One Day



MORGANTOWN — In a recent interview with WDTV News 5, West Virginia Native and current Texas A&M Head Coach was asked if he would ever consider coaching the Mountaineers. He entertained the question by saying, “You don’t ever say never in this business. Home is Home.”

Born in Clarksburg, West Virginia, Fisher, 56, continued, “West Virginia is always near and dear to my heart. I love them and I always rooted for them my whole life. You never say never in this business — where it takes you. I am happy where I am at and I love where I’m at, but home is home.”

His West Virginia roots run deep with his parents growing up in north-central West Virginia and meeting at a local fair at the ages of 23 and 18, according to the Aggies biography on Fisher. Jimbo went on to become the starting quarterback at Liberty High School in Clarksburg as a sophomore. He ended up earning all-state honors in football, as a point guard in basketball and as a middle infielder and pitcher in baseball.

Fisher was named head football coach at Texas A&M University on Dec. 4, 2017. Prior to the 2021 season, the coach and university came to an agreement on a new contract extension, paying Fisher nearly $95 million over the next 10 years.
