Today, Jimbo Fisher informed me he has accepted an offer to become the next head football coach at Texas A&M University.
Fisher will not coach the Seminoles this Saturday in their regular season finale against Louisiana-Monroe.
Several students WTXL spoke to say they strongly believe the football team's bad record this season played a large role and if the team had a strong season, this would not be happening.
"No call, no text, you could of said something ..."
Fisher's connection to Texas A&M comes in the form of Scott Woodward, who knows Fisher from their days at LSU. A win would make FSU bowl eligible for the 36th consecutive season.
The Aggies went hard after Fisher following the firing of Kevin Sumlin, who went 51-26 in six seasons with the program.
Fisher's buyout from Florida State is the sum remaining on the contracts of his assistants who are not retained, which would be in the range of $7 million. The school's lone national championship came in 1939. "We just want him to win a national championship".
"Florida State University has one of the premier programs in college football and has had only two head football coaches in the past 40 years", FSU president John Thrasher said. The team will be coached by associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins. I am confident we will fill the position very soon. Fisher has spoken about his desire for Florida State to add its own football-only building.
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".
