Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M job

Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M job

Florida State (5-6) faces Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday and needs a win to be bowl eligible for a 36th consecutive season. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do.

The Seminoles were ranked third in the AP preseason poll but lost quarterback Deondre Francois in the opener against Alabama. Even though Fisher was gone, the Seminoles still had a game to play that would decide whether the nation's longest bowl streak would stay alive. His $5.7 million salary is the sixth-highest among FBS coaches this season.

After a loss to Louisville on October 21, Fisher got into a verbal altercation with a fan who kept yelling that it is time to hire new assistant coaches. Athletic director Scott Woodward, who worked with Fisher at LSU, and chancellor John Sharp were also in the meeting when the board went to executive session.

Fisher is set to be introduced on Monday.

Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons with the Aggies. Sumlin wasn't able to equal or surpass that the rest of his tenure. Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden.

Fisher spent the past 11 seasons with the Seminoles, the last eight as head coach. The excitement around Florida State is indisputable, and a tremendous opportunity awaits whoever is chosen as our new head football coach.

Possible candidates could include Oregon's Willie Taggart and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente.

Sumlin went 7-5 this year, while Fisher and the Seminoles went 5-6.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney: "Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so". "Florida State is Florida State". I don't have any doubt about that.
