Jimbo Fisher resigning from FSU, won't coach Saturday

Multiple reports suggest that Fisher has agreed to accept a $7.5 million annual offer from Texas A&M and won't coach the Seminoles if they play in a bowl. In comparison, when Nick Saban got his new contract at Alabama, the buyout was reported at $27 million if Alabama fired Saban without cause.

Fisher, 52, had been hoping to coach the Seminoles on Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe but Florida State officials pushed for a decision. "I know he did an unbelievable job at Florida State". The school's only national title came in 1939.

Fisher spent eight seasons as the head coach at Florida State and guided the program to the 2013 national championship.

Florida State said in its statement Friday that it would "move quickly" to evaluate candidates for the coaching position.

According to Tomahawk Nation reporter Bud Elliott, Fisher issued an emotional apology to the players in his final team meeting.

Fisher took over for legend Bobby Bowden prior to the 2010 season after spending three seasons with the program as offensive coordinator/coach-in-waiting. He made $5.7 million this season as part of an extension he signed in December 2016.

The chairman and CEO of Mayfair Investments LLC is Robert L. Albritton, a 1971 alumnus of Texas A&M and a member of the school's Board of Regents.

Names circulating as possibilities for the Florida State post include Oregon's Willie Taggart and South Florida's Charlie Strong.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said that Fisher did an unbelievable job. I expect them to make a hire in the coming week or so whoever the new coach turns out to be.
