Could Jimbo Fisher be on early morning flight from Tallahassee to Texas?

Could Jimbo Fisher be on early morning flight from Tallahassee to Texas?

Multiple outlets are reporting that Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher has resigned to take the top coaching job at Texas A&M.

One prospect has already made a decision to reopen his recruitment, as 4-star safety Leon O'Neal Jr. announced Friday that he has de-committed from Texas A&M.

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. Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden. Is it a bad look for Fisher?

Fisher said Thursday that he intends to coach the Seminoles (5-6) in their final regular-season game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.

"I'm disappointed to see him leave, but at the same time I don't really hate him for it because of what he's done for us and I think, you know, he should be free to go wherever he wants", said Dino Hernandez.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney: "Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so". I believe Texas A&M is getting one of the best coaches in college football. His Seminoles won a national championship in 2013.

With Fisher an Aggie, the coaching search madness of the 2017-18 offseason turns its eyes to Florida State, which now has to hire a head coach. I don't have any doubt about that. The school's lone national championship came in 1939. The top name so far has been first-year OR coach Willie Taggart, who took over at OR last offseason after turning around the South Florida program.
