Texas A&M closing in on new football coach

Jimbo Fisher has resigned as head coach at Florida State and will become the head coach at Texas A&M.

Fisher told university President John Thrasher on Friday that he was resigning to accept Texas A&M's offer.

Fisher won't coach in the Seminoles' game against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

ESPN reports that the 52-year-old wanted to wait to announce his decision until after Saturday's game. However, in Tallahassee, Fisher continues to dodge questions regarding his future as the Seminoles' head coach. If the base pay is $7.5 million, that would make Fisher the third highest paid coach in the country, behind Dabo Swinney and Nick Saban. According to Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com, Fisher is expected to be introduced as the new Aggies head coach on Monday. I've known him forever, when I was at Alabama and he was at Auburn. That leads us to Fisher's contract at A&M. However, should they be tired of the actions of the head coach in recent weeks towards his then own fanbase?

As drama played out this week, three players decommitted from Florida State.

Opening the season as the nation's No. 3 team, Florida State never recovered after losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a knee injury. "I don't have any doubt about that". Suddenly Fisher's move to A&M would make more sense. If he is [going to the Aggies], I can't get rid of him. He will replace Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked last weekend after going 51-26 in six seasons at Texas A&M. Oregon's Willie Taggart, former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin and South Florida's Charlie Strong are options who might be considered.
