Texas A&M Makes Abrupt Coaching Change
Texas A&M made an abrupt coaching change this week.
Head coach Jimbo Fisher is hiring former Georgia offensive coordinator James Coley as the team’s tight ends coach.
As noted by Billy Liucci of TExAgs.com, Coley will be fresh off his fourth year with Georgia
This will not be the first time Coley will be a tight ends coach. He previously held the role at Florida State, also under Fisher.
The pair’s relationship goes back to their time together at LSU.
When the Bulldogs hired Todd Monken as their new offensive coordinator this past week, many wondered what it would mean for Coley’s future.

Now we know.
Fisher is now entering his third year with the Aggies and is looking to make some real noise. Over the past two years, he has gone 17-9 and 9-7 against teams in the conference.
Up to this point, Fisher has gone winless against Alabama, Auburn and Clemson.
Texas A&M finished 2019 with an 8-5 record and went unranked to close out the year.
It will be interesting to see what sort of impact Coley is ultimately able to have on the offense in 2020.
