In the college football world, Head Coach Jimbo Fisher is resigning from Florida State University to take the same position at Texas A&M, according to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach.
Fisher coached for eight seasons in Tallahassee, compiling a record of 83-23. FSU won the 2013 BCS National Championship during his tenure. He signed a contract extension with FSU just last year.
Fisher will not coach the 5-6 Seminoles in Saturday’s game against Lousiana-Monroe.
Multiple reports throughout this developing situation had reported that A&M is prepared to offer Fisher an extensive contract making him one of the highest-paid coaches in the sport.
Texas A&M fired Coach Kevin Sumlin last Sunday. Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons in College Station.
A&M is searching for a coach that can bring them into national prominence. The school has not won a conference championship since 1998 (in the Big 12), and the university’s lone national championship came in 1939.
