Jimbo Fisher Career Recor

In total, Fisher has been a head coach for 14 seasons and accumulated a 128-48 overall record. Here’s how that is broken down.

Florida State Seminoles

Fisher took over for the legendary Bobby Bowden with the Florida State Seminoles and spent eight seasons in Tallahassee. He compiled an 83-23 overall record and a 48-16 mark in ACC play.

  • 2010 – 10-4 overall, 6-2 conference
  • 2011 – 9-4 overall, 5-3 conference
  • 2012 – 12-2 overall, 7-1 conference
  • 2013 – 14-0 overall, 8-0 conference
  • 2014 – 13-1 overall, 8-0 conference
  • 2015 – 10-3 overall, 6-2 conference
  • 2016 – 10-3 overall, 5-3 conference
  • 2017 – 5-6 overall, 3-5 conference

Fisher took over at Florida State in 2010 after Bowden announced his retirement from coaching. At the time, Fisher was serving as the Seminoles’ offensive coordinator and quarterback coach the previous three seasons prior to being promoted to head coach.

It was a fast start for Fisher as his Florida State team won the ACC Atlantic Division, finishing his first season with a 10-4 overall record, winning the Chick-fil-A Bowl game, and finishing in the Top 25 rankings at the end of the season.

Season three in 2012 saw Florida State return to their traditional winning ways as they won the ACC Championship Game after a 12-2 overall season. The Seminoles would go on to win the Orange Bowl game and finish in the Top 10 in the rankings.

2013 was Fisher’s best season as head coach as the Seminoles went undefeated at 14-0, eventually winning the ACC Championship and defeating the Auburn Tigers in the National Championship, 34-31.

For his team’s performance, Fisher won the AFCA Regional Coach of the Year and Rawlings Football Coach of the Year award as well.

During his run as head coach, Florida State won 10 or more games in a season in six of his eight seasons. They won the ACC Championship three years in a row between 2012 through 2014.

Fisher finished with a 5-2 record in bowl games. He only had one losing record as head coach in his last season as the team went 5-6, resulting in him leaving the school for Texas A&M before the end of the season for the Seminoles.

Texas A&M Aggies

Fisher signed on to be the Aggies head coach before the 2017 season was even over and the Maroon carpets were rolled out, literally, for his arrival. He compiled a 45-25 mark with the Aggies that included a 27-21 record in SEC play.

  • 2018 – 9-4 overall, 5-3 conference
  • 2019 – 8-5 overall, 4-4 conference
  • 2020 – 9-1 overall, 8-1 conference
  • 2021 – 8-4 overall, 4-4 conference
  • 2022 – 5-7 overall, 2-6 conference
  • 2023 – 6-4 overall, 4-3 conference

While in the six seasons Fisher was head coach, he saw five of those seasons having winning records, but he was never able to reach the proper expectations for the school.

Through the first two seasons with the Aggies, Fisher helped the team win 17 games and led them to two bowl game victories in the Gator Bowl and Texas Bowl. Texas A&M finished in the Top 25 in his first season with the program in 2018.

Fisher’s best season as head coach was in 2020 when the team finished with a 9-1 record, with their only loss being to the eventual national champions Alabama. Texas A&M finished the season with a 41-27 Orange Bowl win over North Carolina.

The Aggies were not able to improve upon that season as Fisher finished the last three seasons at Texas A&M with a 19-15 overall record and a 10-13 conference record, including a losing record in 2022.

Not all was bad for Fisher during his career at Texas A&M as his team went 3-0 in bowl games. The issue was the Aggies never reached the SEC Championship Game and finished in second place in the Western Division only twice.

Fisher finished with a 45-25 overall record, but with no conference title or national title to his name, his time at Texas A&M didn’t reach the level of success the school wanted.
