Jimbo Fisher finally bolted on the Florida State football program following a horrible 2017 campaign. Fisher left the Seminoles and immediately took over as the new coach at Texas A&M.
Fisher to A&M had been rumored for weeks leading up to the official move and that has led one college football writer to blast the former FSU coach.
Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel appeared on “The Paul Finebaum Show” Monday when he ethered Fisher by saying he “quit” on the team with one game remaining in the regular season.
Finebaum shared Bianchi’s quote on social media.

Those are some very harsh words.
It’s understandable that Florida State fans would be upset with Fisher leaving after eight seasons, but most reports indicated he preferred to wait until after the regular season finale. Ultimately, Fisher was pressured into making a decision prior to the final game of the season, leaving even more of a sting when he left Tallahassee.
Bianchi believes the move to the Aggies for Fisher was ultimately about money and power.
