Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher to take Texas A&M coaching job

Texas A&M has addressed its head coaching vacancy, as Jimbo Fisher will be making the move from Florida State to fill the spot left vacant by the firing of Kevin Sumlin. He led the Seminoles to the national championship in 2013, three Atlantic Coast Conference titles and four ACC Atlantic Division crowns. The team will be coached by associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins.

Fisher told university president John Thrasher yesterday that he was resigning to accept Texas A&M's offer.

A private flight is scheduled to leave Tallahassee early Friday for College Station, Texas.

Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons with the Aggies. "We are extremely pleased by the quality of individuals who have already expressed interest in being the head coach at Florida State University". I believe that we need a new coach to take us there.

Palestinian Farmer Killed by Israeli Settlers in West Bank
The northern West Bank is an occasional flashpoint between settlers and Palestinians. The frequency and intensity of attacks has lessened in the past year.

On ESPNU SiriusXM radio Thursday, Fisher said he was not going to talk about potential jobs.

Opening the season as the nation's No. 3 team, Florida State never recovered after losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a knee injury. That annual rate would make him the third-highest paid coach in college football behind Alabama's Nick Saban and Clemson's Dabo Swinney.

Texas A&M has invested heavily in facilities the past five years, including a football operations center. They'll hire a great coach. The school's lone national championship came in 1939. I don't have any doubt about that.

Student Alexis Taylor said, "I hope that we can get better coaches". Sumlin, Oregon's Willie Taggart, South Florida's Charlie Strong and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are options who might be considered.
