There was a point this season when Florida State fans were worried their National Championship winning coach might be bolting the sunshine state to fill a vacancy in the SEC with LSU.
That seems like it was ages ago now, as FSU has come to terms with Jimbo Fisher that will keep him a Seminole through 2024.
Fisher has led a resurgence at Florida State and holds a 77-17 record there, 4-2 in bowl games including a BCS National Championship. After waiting in the wings under legendary Seminole coach Bobby Bowden, Fisher finally received his chance to run the show in 2010 and promptly responded with a 10-4 season and a Chick-fil-A Bowl victory.
Fisher denied interest in the coaching position at LSU amid all the speculation, though that did little to temper the flames and the school ultimately decided on hiring interim coach Ed Orgeron.
Fisher faces an uphill climb to return his team to prominence, though.
This season the Seminoles finished with a 9-3 record and will face Michigan in the Orange Bowl. The game will be played be played on Dec. 30.
