After weeks of speculation, Jimbo Fisher will in fact be leaving his job as head coach of the Florida State Seminoles and become the new head coach of the Texas A&M Aggies, according to an ESPN report.
The decision comes after a tumultuous week in Tallahassee as Fisher refused to answer questions about a potential move despite varied reports.
In his eight seasons in Tallahassee, Fisher had a record of 83-23 that included three ACC championships and the 2013 national title. He takes over an Aggies team that finished with an above .500 record in SEC games just one time and finished the 2017 regular season with a 7-5 record, losing three of their final five games.
Fisher, who was the offensive coordinator and head coach in waiting for three seasons before taking over the team in 2010, will be reunited with Scott Woodward, the athletics director at Texas A&M who served in the same position at LSU when Fisher was an assistant coach under Nick Saban during the early 2000’s.
