Texas A&M Aggies Football History
The Texas A&M Aggies began playing football in 1894. The Aggies were independent before joining the Southwest Conference. Dana X. Bible became head coach in 1917. In his first two seasons (1917 and 1919,) the Aggies went undefeated and won their conference. In 1919, they finished 10-0 and were crowned National Champions. Bible coached for ten years and ended with a 72–19–9 record. He led the team to two National Championships (1919 and 1927,) five conference championships, and a bowl win.
Homer Norton took over in 1934. From 1939-1941 the Aggies never won less than nine NCAAF games. Additionally, they won their conference in each of those years and the National Championship in 1939. He held the post until 1947 and finished with an 82–53–9 record.
Legendary coach Bear Bryant coached the Aggies from 1954-1957. After a 1-9 record in his first year, the Aggies had three straight winning NCAAF seasons. In 1956, the Aggies finished with a perfect 9-0 record and won the SWC. Bryant departed for Alabama in 1957.
The Aggies didn’t enjoy another winning season until 1967 and then not again until 1974 under coach Emory Bellard. He was at the helm from 1972-1978. His first two NCAAF seasons were underwhelming. However, in his last four seasons, the Aggies compiled a 40-13 overall record. Additionally, they won the SWC in 1975 and had a bowl record of 1-2.
Jackie Sherrill coached the Aggies from 1982-1988. After two five-win seasons in his first two years, the Aggies saw some success under Sherrill. From 1985-1987, the Aggies had a combined 29-7 record, a 2-1 bowl record, and they won the SWC in all three seasons. Sherrill resigned after the 1988 season, when the Aggies were hit with multiple violations.
Move to the Big Twelve
R. C. Slocum took over in 1989. Slocum was amazing for the Aggies. He coached for 14 years and the Aggies finished with a winning record in 12 of those years. He became the winningest coach in Aggies history with a 123–47–2 during his tenure.
They won three SWC championships and had a 2-4 bowl record. In 1996, they moved to the Big 12. They won their division in 1997 and won the entire Big 12 in 1998. The change in conference didn’t mean much to the Aggies. He was asked to step down after going 6-6 in the 2002 season.
Dennis Franchione coached from 2003-2007. The Aggies had some success under him. The Aggies finished 32-28 and 0-3 in bowl games. Franchione was let go after violating NCAA rules.
Mike Sherman was next up. They were average, at best, during his time, except for the 2010 season. The Aggies finished 9-4 overall and 6-2 in Big 12 play. They also finished 0-2 in college football bowl games. Sherman was relieved of his duties in December 2011.
The Aggies moved to the SEC and hired Kevin Sumlin in 2012. The Aggies started off 11-2 in their first year in the SEC including big wins over Alabama Crimson Tide and a Cotton Bowl win over Oklahoma. Quarterback Johnny Manziel took the country by storm and won the Heisman. In 2013, he followed it up with a 9-4 record. The Aggies posted winning records in each of Sumlin’s six seasons. Sumlin was fired in November 2017. He finished with a 51–26 overall record, and a 3-2 bowl record.
Jimbo Fisher has been head coach since 2018. Fisher finished where Sumlin left off. The Aggies had winning seasons from 2018-2021 and never won less than eight games. So far, Fisher has a 37-21 overall record and a perfect 3-0 bowl record.
