FSU football coach Jimbo Fisher is in play for the Texas A&M head coaching job, but he has been silent on any speculation and refused to comment on the possibility that he will leave Tallahassee.
That has left the Seminoles in limbo and they are growing tired of waiting.
According to a report from ESPN’s Mark Schlabach on Thursday morning, Florida State is “urging” Fisher to make a decision regarding the Texas A&M vacancy as soon as possible.
Fisher would prefer to wait until after the regular season finale to make his decision, but the Seminoles faithful aren’t as willing to wait.
Florida State is currently preparing for this weekend’s game against Louisiana-Monroe.
From the report:
Florida State officials are urging Jimbo Fisher to decide whether he’ll remain the school’s football coach beyond this season or accept a lucrative offer from Texas A&M, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
…Fisher, 52, had hoped to wait to announce his decision until after Saturday’s regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe in Tallahassee, Florida, which the Seminoles (5-6, 3-5 ACC) need to win to extend their streak of 35 consecutive bowl games.
If Fisher is going to comply with Florida State’s request, a decision will come in the next 48 hours.
Otherwise, the Seminoles will be forced to continue delaying any head coaching search, leaving the team behind the eight-ball with the early signing period just around the corner.
Kickoff between Florida State and Louisiana-Monroe is set for 12: 00 p.m. ET on the ACC Network.
