Jimbo Fisher Resigns At Florida State To Take Texas A&M Job

Jimbo Fisher Reportedly Named Texas A&M HC After 8 Years at FSU

CT, leading to speculation that Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher may be meeting with Texas A&M officials to finalize a contract to become the school's next football coach.

At Florida State Fisher was the 5th highest paid coach in the nation, earning $5.7 million a year.

According to the Democrat, Fisher will not coach the Seminoles in this weekend's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

Florida State will find out who their opponent and destination will be during Sunday afternoon when the bowl games and matchups are revealed during ESPN's Selection Sunday show.

Fisher was 83-23 in his eight seasons in Tallahassee, including one national title that he won with Jameis Winston in 2013.

"I don't know", Swinney said, when told of the move during a news conference for the ACC championship game.

Jimbo Fisher just got paid big time by Texas A&M.

President Thrasher and I have worked together through this challenging period while Coach Fisher was making a decision, and I appreciate the cooperation, support and leadership he has provided.

The Aggies went hard after Fisher following the firing of Kevin Sumlin, who went 51-26 in six seasons with the program. Defensive line coach Odell Haggins will be the interim coach. The school's only national title came in 1939.

FSU student Ben James said, "It's a huge loss for the Florida State community, it's a huge loss for the football community, especially for the die-hard Florida State Fans". I am confident we will fill the position very soon.

Bobby Hauck returned as head football coach at Montana, a program he led to three FCS national championship games during a prior tenure. The excitement around Florida State is indisputable, and a tremendous opportunity awaits whoever is chosen as our new head football coach.
