  • 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

College Station is the home of Texas A&M, where Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher is expected to take the same position with the Aggies.

In his time at Florida State, Fisher went 83-23 and won a national championship back in 2013.

Texas A&M sources indicated to ESPN that the Aggies were prepared to make Fisher one of the sport's highest-paid coaches with an annual salary of more than $7 million, ranking behind Alabama's Nick Saban ($11.1 million in total compensation this year, average of $8.27 million over eight years).

Fisher is just the fourth head coach to leave a school where he has won an AP national championship and go directly to another college job.

Now that Fisher has made a decision to bolt, see how Twitter reacted to the news.




Deondre Francois is not happy about how Jimbo Fisher left his coaching post at Florida State. The school's lone national championship came in 1939. They are 19-12 in their last 31 games, including 10-10 in the ACC. He was making $5.7 million this season, sixth-highest.

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.

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

"Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so", Swinney said at an ACC title game news conference. We play Texas A&M the next two years. The top name so far has been first-year OR coach Willie Taggart, who took over at OR last offseason after turning around the South Florida program.
