Jimbo Fisher's teary-eyed apology to players in his final FSU meeting

Jimbo Fisher’s deal with Texas A&M nearly finalized per reports

At Florida State Fisher was the 5th highest paid coach in the nation, earning $5.7 million a year.

Fisher maintained Thursday that he expects to coach the Seminoles for their regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe, repeatedly refusing to answer whether he'll be back at Florida State in 2018.

ESPN reports that the 52-year-old wanted to wait to announce his decision until after Saturday's game.

One student said she was happy to hear Fisher was gone, pointing at the teams 5-6 record this season.

"Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden", Florida State president John Thrasher said in a statement.

"No call, no text, you could have said something..."

Texas A&M last won a conference championship in 1998 when the Aggies were members of the Big 12.

Fisher, who had dodged questions about his interest in Texas A&M for the last two weeks, said as recently as Thursday that he meant to coach on Saturday.

However, despite being ranked No. 3 heading into this season, Florida State has just five wins and is merely aiming to become bowl eligible.

"I don't know how it got out", A sobbing Fisher said.

When Texas A&M fired Kevin Sumlin on Sunday, athletic director Scott Woodward stated a desire to compete for SEC and national championships. The school's only national title came in 1939.

New interim coach Odell Haggins also consoled players.

It has been an interesting season for the Florida State Seminoles. I am confident we will fill the position very soon. The excitement around Florida State is indisputable, and a tremendous opportunity awaits whoever is chosen as our new head football coach.
