Could Jimbo Fisher be on early morning flight from Tallahassee to Texas?

Posted December 02, 2017

ESPN reports that Fisher will leave the program prior to Saturday's regular season finale with ULM to take the same position at Texas A&M after eight seasons as the head coach of the Seminoles.

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

Meantime, Florida State is bracing for Fisher's departure.

According to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, Texas A&M approved a 10-year $75 million deal for Fisher, who officially resigned from Florida State on Friday.

The Register-Guard confirmed that OR did offer Taggart a contact extension last weekend, which Sports Illustrated reported as a five-year deal worth $20 million. Fisher will receive more guaranteed money than he was due at Florida State.

Fisher has overseen the Noles' football program since Bobby Bowden retired prior to the 2010 season.

Fortunately, A&M has the facilities to make Jimbo a happy man for as long as he's in College Station, but the way he handled the Florida State resignation has been a nightmare. I expect them to make a hire in the coming week or so whoever the new coach turns out to be.

Jimbo Fisher just got paid big time by Texas A&M.

Names circulating as possibilities for the Florida State post include Oregon's Willie Taggart and South Florida's Charlie Strong.

As I said, Fisher's tenure at FSU came to a nasty end and could have been easily avoided had he and the school communicated better.

Texas A&M fired head coach Kevin Sumlin after their season ended.
