Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher has been a renowned college football coach for some time, leading to speculation about a potential leap to the NFL. But it appears that coaching in the league is not a part of Fisher’s plans, and very well may never be.
Fisher has been contacted by a number of NFL teams over the course of past couple of years. Fisher claimed that he had pondered the idea, but it only took him “half an hour” to realize he didn’t want to coach at a higher level than college football.
“I love college and I had opportunities to go to pro football as an assistant coach and as a coordinator and I’ve had inquiries as a head coach,” Fisher said per the Palm Beach Post.
“It’s got to be the right organization at the right time and the right situation if you’re ever interested. We have a great situation where I’m at. It’s not something that drives me.”
And you really can’t blame Fisher for wanting to stay in college football.
In his time with the Seminoles, he has racked up three ACC titles, won a national championship and currently holds a .829 winning percentage in his six seasons at Florida State.
It’s likely that we won’t see Fisher ever coaching elsewhere in his career, as he has made it clear that he wishes for the program to be his only head coaching gig.
