Jimbo Fisher leaving Florida State for Texas A&M job

Jimbo Fisher leaving Florida State for Texas A&M job

After weeks of speculation about Jimbo Fisher possibly leaving his head football coach position at Florida State, the Tallahassee Democrat reports that Jimbo Fisher is headed to Texas.

Texas A&M sources indicated to ESPN that the Aggies were prepared to make Fisher one of the sport's highest-paid coaches with an annual salary of more than $7 million, ranking behind Alabama's Nick Saban ($11.1 million in total compensation this year, average of $8.27 million over eight years).

Florida State concludes the regular season by hosting Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

"I'm disappointed to see him leave, but at the same time I don't really hate him for it because of what he's done for us and I think, you know, he should be free to go wherever he wants", said Dino Hernandez.

Fisher goes to a program that has lofty hopes amid a drought: Texas A&M last won a conference championship in 1998, when it was in the Big 12. It's now unclear if he will coach Saturday.




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".

Texas A&M also paid Kevin Sumlin $10.4 million in buyout money. Their last conference title came in 2014, with the season bottoming out at 5-6 heading into this weekend's rescheduled game. We appreciate all he has done for our program and wish him and his family great success moving forward.

Miami coach Mark Richt: "I've been through it, so I know job changes can happen". The team will be coached by associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins.

Florida State issued official statement's on Fisher's departure on Friday.

Bobby Hauck returned as head football coach at Montana, a program he led to three FCS national championship games during a prior tenure. I don't have any doubt about that.
