On the afternoon of his final day in College Station, Bjork published a statement on social media to reflect on his time and what he achieved during his time with the Aggies.
“As I serve my last day at Texas A&M, I wanted to give thanks to everyone around Aggieland,” Bjork stated on X. “It was an honor to work here the last four and a half years and for twelve years in the SEC. I appreciate the Board of Regents, Chancellor Sharp, 12th Man Foundation Board, coaches, staff, and most importantly, the student-athletes at Texas A&M. To the donors, fans and students – the 12th Man is the real deal and I know you care deeply about the Aggies and deserve success. I want to give special thanks to President Mark Welsh for his support and positive and steadfast leadership and I can’t wait to watch him propel Texas A&M University.
“Our goal was to make Texas A&M better than we found it and I am proud of what we accomplished on and off the fields of play. Our family will always love and cherish our time in Aggieland and these special bonds will last a lifetime.
“Thanks & Gig’Em
“- Ross Bjork”
