What they're saying about Jimbo Fisher's departure from Florida State

What they're saying about Jimbo Fisher's departure from Florida State

College Station is the home of Texas A&M, where Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher is expected to take the same position with the Aggies.

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

Fisher is just the fourth head coach to leave a school where he has won an AP national championship and go directly to another college job.

"Kevin's tenure included some remarkable achievements and he leaves our program as one of the winningest football coaches in our storied history", Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement.

"No call, no text, you could of said something ..." I've known him forever, when I was at Alabama and he was at Auburn.

New interim coach Odell Haggins also consoled players.

Florida State had the running game going as they totaled 302 yards between Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers.

Texas A&M has invested heavily in facilities the past five years, including a football operations center. They'll hire a great coach. I don't get in to the rumors and the rumor mill. 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.

His silence on whether he is going to take the open Texas A&M job has reportedly ruffled the feathers of some high-ranking FSU athletic officials and boosters, who seem resigned to the idea that Fisher wants out of Tallahassee. "I've been waiting to come to this school and it's like really upsetting".

He had been coaching the team for eight years with a 83-23 record.

Information from ESPN's Mark Schlabach and Sam Khan Jr. and The Associated Press was used in this report.
