Jimbo Fisher leaves Florida State for Texas A&M

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

One of the worst-kept secrets in college football became reality Friday when Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher announced his resignation to take the same job at Texas A&M, according to multiple reports.

Fisher maintained Thursday that he expects to coach the Seminoles for their regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe, repeatedly refusing to answer whether he'll be back at Florida State in 2018.

Defensive line coach Odell Haggins will coach Florida State (5-6) on Saturday.

Fisher won the BCS National Championship in 2013 with the Seminoles and was 83-23 in eight seasons as their head coach.

Fisher became FSU's head coach in 2010 taking over for Bobby Bowden.

EPL: Sanchez Late Penalty Fires Arsenal To 4th
Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal will proceed with a renewed sense of confidence following their late 1-0 victory at Burnley . James Tarkowski shoved Aaron Ramsey in the back as the midfielder tried to run onto a 91st minute header in the box.

Last December, Fishersigned a contract extension through 2024 that made him among the highest-paid coaches in the country.

Fisher reportedly has grown frustrated with Florida State officials over the failure to improve football facilities. I've known him forever, when I was at Alabama and he was at Auburn. We play Texas A&M the next two years. They'll hire a great coach. How much cash will they have if Fisher delivers teams at A&M like he had at Florida State?

At the most, this would be seen as a lateral move for Fisher. I don't get in to the rumors and the rumor mill.

The Aggies fired Kevin Sumlin on November 26 after six seasons.

Now, it appears that Oregon's Willie Taggart and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente have both emerged as legitimate possibilities to fill Fisher's shoes.
