A&M head football coach Jimbo Fisher cut short Thursday’s practice by at least 30 minutes because of a lack of focus.

“I didn’t like the demeanor which we had,” Fisher said. “We weren’t creating good enough habits and I didn’t think we were executing at the level we need to have.”

Fisher said you either are creating good or bad habits and he’s not going to accept bad ones. He didn't see much to build on during the 75 minutes before sending them to the lockers.

"I needed didn't see the focus, didn't see the execution, didn't see the detail." Fisher said. "I didn't see the communication, didn't see the things that make you play good football consistently."

Fisher holds everyone accountable for the poor practice.

“You don’t need leadership to tell you you’re not doing your job or you’re not doing it well enough, you gotta pick it up,” Fisher said.

Fisher, in his second season at A&M, didn’t remember cutting another practice short. Fisher said several times he wasn’t made at what happened Thursday, it was just unacceptable.

The Aggies will return to the Coolidge practice fields Saturday after an off day Friday.

“We’ll see who wants to play when we get back on the field on Saturday,” Fisher said.
