Jimbo Fisher resigns from Florida State, heading to Texas A&M

  • Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher watches play against Florida during the second half of an NCAA college football game Saturday Nov. 25 2017 in Gainesville Fla. Florida State won 38-22

Fisher agreed this week to become the next Texas A&M coach on a 10-year, $75 million contract, according to multiple reports.

Fisher and the Seminoles were the BCS champions after the 2013 season - the final season of the BCS era.

Florida State faces Louisiana-Monroe today and needs a win to be bowl eligible. Odell Haggins will act as interim head coach.

"Today, Jimbo Fisher informed me he has accepted an offer to become the next head football coach at Texas A&M University".

Fisher is set to be introduced on Monday.

Mike Gundy, who affirmed his commitment to Oklahoma State this week following reported interest from Tennessee, got a $675,000 pay increase, bumping his salary to $5 million per year.

Texas A&M also paid Kevin Sumlin $10.4 million in buyout money. "The excitement around Florida State is indisputable, and a tremendous opportunity awaits whoever is chosen as our new head football coach".

Fisher's silence has already had an impact on recruiting as three players who were verbal commitments have said they have chose to reopen their searches. He was mentioned the last two years as a candidate at LSU, where he spent seven seasons as the offensive coordinator (2000-06).

On ESPNU SiriusXM radio Thursday, Fisher said he was not going to talk about potential jobs.

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

"Obviously, he feels like it's the right move for him". I believe Texas A&M is getting one of the best coaches in college football. Taggart, who grew up in Bradenton, Florida, went 7-5 in his first season at Oregon. They'll hire a great coach.

He had been coaching the team for eight years with a 83-23 record. I don't have any doubt about that.
