New Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher continues to piece together his first staff in College Station since leaving Florida State. On Saturday, it was reported Fisher has added Baylor defensive line coach Elijah Robinson. Robinson will complete the 10-man assistant coaching staff for Texas A&M by filling the last vacancy on the staff a day after adding a pair of new coaches to the staff.
It is expected Robinson will take on the role of coaching the defensive tackles for the Aggies. He will join a staff led by defensive coordinator Mike Elko and includes Terry Price as defensive ends coach, Bradley Peveto as linebacker coach and Maurice Linguist as cornerbacks coach. Texas A&M added Jerry Schmidt as a strength and conditioning coach earlier this week.
Baylor head coach Matt Rhule shared a message of gratitude for Robinson. Robinson was a part of Rhule’s staff at Temple before moving to Waco last year.
With all of the pieces of the coaching staff now assembled, Fisher and his newly assembled staff can focus on making the final sales pitches on the recruiting trail before the next signing period. Then it is time to get to work for the spring as Texas A&M looks to turn things around a bit and put together a solid effort from start to finish in 2018.
