  • Jimbo Fisher’s deal with Texas A&M nearly finalized per reports

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

Fisher, 52, went 83-23 in eight seasons at Florida State.

Fisher's connection to Texas A&M comes in the form of Scott Woodward, who knows Fisher from their days at LSU.

I would tell our supporters and fans the same thing that I told our team: "we will hire a head coach that will lead Florida State to ACC and National Championships".

Texas A&M will pay Fisher $75 million over 10 years, which is the largest deal in college football history in terms of total value.

A private flight is scheduled to leave Tallahassee early Friday for College Station, Texas.

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.

Opening the season as the nation's No. 3 team, Florida State never recovered after losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a knee injury. "I've been waiting to come to this school and it's like really upsetting".

The state stood ninth in the country with respect to the number of cases of atrocities against Scheduled Castes. While Uttar Pradesh reported 4,889 murder cases, the national capital reported almost 40 percent of rape cases.

Last December, Fisher signed a contract extension through 2024 that made him among the highest-paid coaches in the country. His $5.7 million salary is the sixth-highest among FBS coaches this season. They are 19-12 in their last 31 games, including 10-10 in the ACC.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said that Fisher did an unbelievable job.

Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons with the Aggies. We play Texas A&M the next two years. Taggart, who grew up in Bradenton, Florida, went 7-5 in his first season at Oregon.

"Obviously, he feels like it's the right move for him". I don't have any doubt about that.
