Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M coaching job

03 December 2017

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.

Fisher and the Seminoles were the BCS champions after the 2013 season - the final season of the BCS era. Florida State also needs a win on Saturday and in a bowl game to avoid its first losing season since 1976. But Francois clearly would have preferred his head coach to have said something.

According to Warchant, Fisher's contract with A&M will be a 10-year deal with a salary of $7.5 million per season.

Fisher will be introduced on Monday in College Station. He led the Aggies to an 11-2 record in his first season in 2012, including 6-2 in the Southeastern Conference which included a win at top-ranked Alabama. "We are extremely pleased by the quality of individuals who have already expressed interest in being the head coach at Florida State University".

The airline said its working to address the issue and to avoid cancellation during the holiday season. Dennis Tajer, a spokesman for the union, said to The Associated Press.

On ESPNU SiriusXM radio Thursday, Fisher said he was not going to talk about potential jobs. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do.

Nick Saban is being paid an average of $8.1 million per year.

"Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so", Swinney said at an ACC title game news conference. "I've been waiting to come to this school and it's like really upsetting". They'll hire a great coach. If he is [going to the Aggies], I can't get rid of him. Sumlin, Oregon's Willie Taggart, South Florida's Charlie Strong and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are options who might be considered.
