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

Jimbo Fisher's name got tossed around coaching circles seemingly every November for the last four years, and now he's reportedly moving on from Tallahassee, according to multiple reports.

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 is scheduled to be flown into College Station on Sunday afternoon after Florida State's final matchup of the regular season against the University of Louisiana at Monroe on Saturday. We play Texas A&M the next two years. Florida State is trying to avoid its first losing season since 1976. The school's only national title came in 1939.

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


The 4-7 Florida Gators football team does not have a lot to be overly pleased about this season, but they're certainly in a much better place than state rival Florida State.

"Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden", Florida State president John Thrasher said in a statement.

Fisher, who had dodged questions about his interest in Texas A&M for the last two weeks, said as recently as Thursday that he meant to coach on Saturday.

Fisher had signed an extension with FSU through 2024 just last December. However, should they be tired of the actions of the head coach in recent weeks towards his then own fanbase?
