Young share the stage in the Hall of Champions at Kyle Field, where Fisher was introduced as the A&M football head coach during a press conference Monday morning.

Even before Jimbo Fisher was named the new head football coach at Texas A&M, A&M System Chancellor John Sharp held high expectations for the position.

In late November, when asked what he is looking for in a new head coach after a special meeting of the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents, Sharp did not mince words.

“Nothing serious. Just want to win a national championship,” he said.

After a question and answer panel discussion during the Chancellor’s Century Council annual meeting on Feb. 16, Sharp presented Fisher with a plaque celebrating a NCAA Division I Football National Championship for a date yet to be named, which can be seen in a video released by the Texas A&M University System.

The gift was given after the Chancellor presented Texas A&M-Commerce head football coach Colby Carthel with an identical plaque commemorating the Lions' 2017 NCAA Division II title.

“The only difference between Colby’s and yours is you get to fill in the date,” Sharp told Fisher during the presentation

“I hope I fill in a couple,” Fisher responded with a laugh.

Fisher will get his first on-field look at his new program beginning on March 20, when the Aggies open spring practice. A&M will open the 2018 season at home on Aug. 30, a Thursday, at 7:30 p.m., facing Northwestern State. The game will be televised by the SEC Network.

A&M the walking Onion article. You can't make this stuff up, apparently neither can John Sharp. He is the worst most embarassing chancellor in my lifetime.

John Sharp, the definition of bad leadership. It was the dumbest stunt I have seen in my 74 years....you can't make it up either. He needs to take his ego home to the sticks.

The board of retards gave sharp a vote of confidence with a 5 year contract extension. This should tell you something. A group of jokers supporting the biggest clown.
