The latest bit of news comes as little surprise: Jimbo Fisher will become the head football coach at Texas A&M.

He will not coach FSU's regular season finale this Saturday versus Louisiana-Monroe.

While Florida State was holding its final practice for Saturday's game, Texas A&M's Board of Regents was meeting to discuss the hiring of a new coach.

ESPN reported earlier this week that Texas A&M was prepared to make Fisher one of the sport's highest paid coaches, including giving him an annual salary of more than $7 million.

Taggart coached OR to a 7-5 record this season and is 47-50 overall as a head coach.

Fisher had signed an extension with FSU through 2024 just last December.

"Obviously, he feels like it's the right move for him". Florida State is trying to avoid its first losing season since 1976. This is a business that's very public, as we all know, and from time to time, you have to make decisions. However, should they be tired of the actions of the head coach in recent weeks towards his then own fanbase? How much cash will they have if Fisher delivers teams at A&M like he had at Florida State?

Texas A&M has not made any formal announcement about hiring a replacement for Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked last week. "I don't have any doubt about that". We play Texas A&M the next two years. "I don't know how it got out", A sobbing Fisher said.

Possible candidates could include Oregon's Willie Taggart and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente.
