Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fischer had a funny reaction to Kirby Smart's massive contract extension on Thursday.
Smart signed a 10-year contract with Georgia, which is worth $112.5 million.
He is now one of the highest paid college coaches in the country.
Fischer thinks he should get "two percent" from Smart and the rest of the coaches, who have gotten 10-year deals after meeting him.
"Texas A&M wants to be the best," said Fisher (first written by Saturday Down South).
"We're trying to get the culture going and it takes time to get things right.
So we signed another 10-year contract, and Kirby just got a contract today.
I told these people, I get two percent. I was the first to do so, so I should get two percent.
All those 10-year contract people should pay me two percent."
In addition to Fisher, Kirby Smart, Brian Kelly, James Franklin, Dabo Swinney,
And Mel Tucker is the only other coach at FBS right now to have signed 10-year deals.
It will be interesting to see if Fischer still makes this joke if he wins the national championship in College Station.
