Jimbo Fisher Joins Texas A&M On Record-Breaking $75M Contract

Jimbo Fisher Reportedly Named Texas A&M HC After 8 Years at FSU Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M coaching job

All signs seem to point to Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher.

According to Wayne E. McGahee III of the Tallahassee Democrat, Fisher and Texas A&M came to terms Friday.

Fisher said Thursday that he intends to coach the Seminoles (5-6) in their final regular-season game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.

ESPN reports that the 52-year-old wanted to wait to announce his decision until after Saturday's game.

During his eight years as Florida State's head coach, Fisher amassed a 83-23 record that included three conference championships (2012-14) and one national championship (2013).

Fisher has overseen the Noles' football program since Bobby Bowden retired prior to the 2010 season. The head coach reportedly wanted new state of the art facilities while the athletic department and boosters weren't ready to spend a pretty penny.

"Obviously, he feels like it's the right move for him". I've known him forever, when I was at Alabama and he was at Auburn. A press conference officially announcing Fisher's hire to replace Kevin Sumlin - who was sacked November 26 after the Aggies' 45-21 loss to LSU - is expected to take place Monday morning following authorization by the regents. I expect them to make a hire in the coming week or so whoever the new coach turns out to be. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do. I don't get in to the rumors and the rumor mill.

The fan was quickly shoved out of the room by a man wearing Florida State gear. Oregon's Willie Taggart, former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin and South Florida's Charlie Strong are options who might be considered.
