FSU football coach Jimbo Fisher is leaving Tallahassee.
After years as the focus of multiple rumors on the coaching carousel, Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher has reportedly decided to leave the Seminoles to take over at Texas A&M.
The decision is effective immediately, meaning Fisher will not coach this weekend’s game against Louisiana-Monroe.
Tomahawk Nation reported the news.
According to reports, Fisher could be in line for a ten-year contract worth upwards of $75 million.

Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward previously served in the same role at LSU. During his tenure in Baton Rouge, Tigers athletic programs claimed ten national titles, including the 2003 national championship in football when Fisher was serving as offensive coordinator under Nick Saban.
Now, Fisher and Woodward have been reunited.
