Jimbo Fisher departs FSU for Texas A&M job

Jimbo Fisher departs FSU for Texas A&M job

Jimbo Fisher has left his job as head coach of Florida State to join Texas A&M. Defensive line coach Odell Haggins will be the interim coach.

"Kevin's tenure included some remarkable achievements and he leaves our program as one of the winningest football coaches in our storied history", Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement.

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 supposed to be played back in September but was postponed due to Hurricane Irma. However, things didn't work out this year. Sumlin was 51-26 in his career at Texas A&M, but the administration had grew exhausted of Sumlin after his apparent failures to build upon the 11-2 record in his first season at the school. He led the Aggies to an 11-2 record in his first season in 2012, including 6-2 in the Southeastern Conference which included a win at top-ranked Alabama.

His silence on whether he is going to take the open Texas A&M job has reportedly ruffled the feathers of some high-ranking FSU athletic officials and boosters, who seem resigned to the idea that Fisher wants out of Tallahassee.

Last December, Fisher signed a contract extension through 2024 that makes him among the highest-paid coaches in the country.

Prosecutors Want Martin Shkreli to Forfeit His Wu Tang Clan CD
In a report from TMZ , they say the government wants Shkreli to hand over the one-of-one Wu-Tang Clan album and Wayne's album. Shkreli paid $2 million for the only existing copy of the Wu-Tang album at an auction in 2015.

The deal looks like it will be a highly lucrative one for Fisher.

"Obviously, he feels like it's the right move for him".

"No call, no text, you could have said something..." Florida State is Florida State. "I wish him the very best".

"Florida State is Florida State".
