Report: Florida State Expects Jimbo Fisher To Leave For Texas A&M

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher reiterated Thursday that he expects to be on the sideline Saturday for the regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe.

Many are anticipating it will be his final game with the Seminoles.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that they think Fisher will leave Florida State for Texas AM and that the school has started the process of vetting potential candidates. They spoke on condition of anonymity because neither Texas AM nor Florida State has publicly discussed details of the Aggies coaching search.

While Florida State was holding its final practice for Saturday’s game, Texas AM’s Board of Regents was meeting to discuss the hiring of a new coach. Athletic director Scott Woodward and chancellor John Sharp were also in the meeting when the board went to executive session.

Fisher was seen talking to someone on his phone right before addressing the media.

When asked what he expects the atmosphere to be like on Saturday, Fisher said ”hopefully, great. Cheer loud, guys will play well and we’ll get a bowl game.”

The Seminoles (5-6) need a win on Saturday to become bowl eligible for a 36th consecutive season.

They were ranked third in the AP preseason poll but lost quarterback Deondre Francois in the opener against Alabama and were 3-6 at one point before winning their last two. Florida State also needs a win
