Twitter trolls Jimbo Fisher after leaving Florida State for Texas A&M

Jimbo Fisher Reportedly Named Texas A&M HC After 8 Years at FSU

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher gives instructions to his team during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Boston College in Boston, Friday, Oct. 27, 2017.

"Jimbo's a great football coach and my hope would be that he stays at Florida State University, but if he has other opportunities that are more valuable to him and his family, then I certainly understand that", Thrasher said. The Seminoles won the 2013 national championship and were ranked in the final AP poll in each of his first seven campaigns. Odell Haggins coached the Seminoles to the victory.

Mike Gundy, who affirmed his commitment to Oklahoma State this week following reported interest from Tennessee, got a $675,000 pay increase, bumping his salary to $5 million per year. He will replace Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked last weekend after going 51-26 in six seasons at Texas A&M. "I know he did an unbelievable job at Florida State".

Students here at FSU have mixed feelings on Fisher's resignation, but the overwhelming majority we spoke with say they're shocked and saddened by the news.

Fisher previously spent time at Auburn (1993-1998) and LSU (2000-06) as an assistant coach, making this a return to the SEC.

On ESPNU SiriusXM radio Thursday, Fisher said he was not going to talk about potential jobs. We play Texas A&M the next two years.

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

Opening the season as the nation's No. 3 team, Florida State never recovered after losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a knee injury. They'll hire a great coach. Sumlin, Oregon's Willie Taggart, South Florida's Charlie Strong and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are options who might be considered.
