Oh how the mighty have fallen. Yesterday afternoon, longtime FSU coach Jimbo Fisher announced that he was not coaching the team’s final home game of the season after taking the head coaching job over at Texas A&M.
Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher has resigned to take the head coaching job at Texas A&M, Florida State officials announced Friday.
Fisher won’t coach in the Seminoles’ game against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. The team will be coached by associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins.
“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. “I believe Texas A&M is getting one of the best coaches in college football.”
Fisher, 52, had hoped to wait to announce his decision until after Saturday’s regular-season finale, which the Seminoles (5-6, 3-5 ACC) need to win to extend their streak of 35 consecutive bowl games. The game was postponed from Sept. 9 and rescheduled to Saturday because of Hurricane Irma.
Apparently FSU fans can give two shits about their game on Saturday against ULM because Doak Campbell Stadium was pretty fucking empty.
Can’t blame the fans, no one is watching this ULM-FSU game this week.
