Jimbo Fisher leaving FSU to become head coach at Texas A&M

Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher has resigned to take the head coaching job at Texas AM, Florida State officials announced Friday.

Fisher won’t coach in the Seminoles’ game against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. The team will be coached by associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins.

“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. “I believe Texas AM is getting one of the best coaches in college football.”

Fisher, 52, had hoped to wait to announce his decision until after Saturday’s regular-season finale, which the Seminoles (5-6, 3-5 ACC) need to win to extend their streak of 35 consecutive bowl games. The game was postponed from Sept. 9 and rescheduled to Saturday because of Hurricane Irma.

Whom should Florida State hire to replace Jimbo Fisher

The Seminoles, shockingly, need a new coach. They are one of the sport’s top destinations with a wealth of recruiting advantages and a championship legacy.
