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".

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.
