AD Stan Wilcox calls Seminoles ‘the best program in the country’

10:05 PM ET

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State athletic director Stan Wilcox said Saturday the reason Jimbo Fisher left for Texas AM is because the Seminoles simply could not compete with the Aggies’ finances.

Fisher resigned Friday and did not coach in the Seminoles’ 42-10 win over Louisiana Monroe on Saturday. Instead, he will be introduced Monday as Texas AM’s coach after receiving what sources previously told ESPN is a 10-year deal worth a guaranteed $75 million.

Even though Fisher has, at times, complained about the pace at which facilities were being built at Florida State, Wilcox spoke highly of his former coach.
