Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher emphatically rebuffed speculation Monday that he could emerge as a top target for LSU.

"I'm (gonna) say this right now: I love being here," Fisher told reporters. "This is the job I wanted. I got a great contract, I have an unbelievable chancellor, have an unbelievable president, an unbelievable (athletic director), we're building something, we're recruiting great players, I really believe we're on the process of building something great. I plan on being here and fulfilling this contract. My family has roots here, I got ranches here, I hunt here, I love everything about this place."

LSU announced Sunday it will part ways with Ed Orgeron at the end of the season, opening one of the most attractive jobs in the nation. Fisher has ties to LSU athletic director Scott Woodward, who brought him to Texas A&M from Florida State in 2018 when he worked for the Aggies.

Fisher signed an extension with Texas A&M at the beginning of the season that runs through the 2031 season and guarantees him approximately $95 million. However, the deal reportedly doesn't contain a buyout should he leave on his own accord.

"I love being at A&M and I plan on being at A&M here and fulfilling my whole contract," Fisher reiterated. "I love everything about this place."

Fisher, who defeated Alabama for the first time two weeks ago, owns a 31-12 record in four seasons at Texas A&M. He won a national championship at Florida State in 2013 and was an LSU assistant from 2000-06.
