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

  • Rumors swirling around FSU have potentially cost the team a four-star commit

"With all that being said I am de-committing (sic) from Texas A&M University".

Fisher was 83-23 in his eight seasons in Tallahassee, including one national title that he won with Jameis Winston in 2013. He will replace Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked last weekend after going 51-26 in six seasons at Texas A&M. The Aggies are shelling out some serious cash.

The Houston Chronicle reported that Fisher is expected to earn $7 million to $7.5 million over at least five years.

FSU President John Thrasher announced Fisher's resignation Friday afternoon.

Fisher's connection to Texas A&M comes in the form of Scott Woodward, who knows Fisher from their days at LSU.

Fisher is set to be introduced on Monday.

Many were anticipating it will be his final game with the Seminoles.

He will not coach in the Seminoles' regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

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.

The safety committed to Texas A&M in June, picking the program over LSU, Nebraska, Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Texas.

Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons with the Aggies.

Texas A&M has invested heavily in facilities the past five years, including a football operations center.

This marks the first time since after the 1975 season that Florida State has had to embark on a coaching search, when it went on to hire Bobby Bowden.

On ESPNU SiriusXM radio Thursday, Fisher said he was not going to talk about potential jobs. Taggart, who grew up in Bradenton, Florida, went 7-5 in his first season at Oregon. I don't have any doubt about that.
