Jimbo Fisher: Move from Florida State to Texas A&M was 'no-brainer'

Jimbo Fisher: Move from Florida State to Texas A&M was 'no-brainer'

Fisher reiterated how much he loved his time at Florida State, but what he said about "oneness" reiterated a sentiment he expressed in his opening statement. The Trojans have been recruiting Taylor-Stuart for a long while and he's been to campus multiple times including a recent trip to The Coliseum for a game.

The past, present and future of Texas A&M football merged together with one quip from Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher's absence after a testy week negotiating his new deal, along with the Seminoles' taking care of their business on the football field made for a positive ending to an emotion-filled regular season. In his first season as a head coach at FSU, his salary was $1.6 million.

OR coach Willie Taggart, a Bradenton native and former USF coach, is among few known candidates for the job.

Texas A&M officials say success is just part of 52-year-old Fisher's DNA.

The upgrades at Florida State will be left behind for someone else (FSU's pursuit of Oregon's Willie Taggart seems to be heating up) while Fisher pursues a new challenge in the SEC at A&M, a place Fisher thinks he can take to new heights.

Fisher, who won a national title with Florida State, said he knows what is expected of him and what he needs to do during his 10 year allotted time at Texas A&M. "And there was a commitment to excellence and there was a vision for what we wanted to do", Fisher said. "When you get an offer like he got, you can't turn those things down".

After eight seasons, Jimbo Fisher is leaving Florida State, accepting the Texas A&M head coaching job.

As Fisher approached the podium for the first time to speak since he resigned from Florida State last Friday, he greeted those in attendance with an resonating "Howdy".

An FSU fan questioned coach Jimbo Fisher's loyalty to the Seminoles and was kicked out of the radio show audience Thursday night.
