After a week of continuous speculation, Jimbo Fisher is leaving Florida State to become the head coach at Texas A&M.

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.

According to the Democrat, Fisher will not coach the Seminoles in this weekend's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

FSU President John Thrasher announced Fisher's resignation Friday afternoon.

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

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

Jimbo Fisher just got paid big time by Texas A&M. Texas A&M chancellor John Sharp said after Thursday's Board of Regents meeting that expectations were "nothing serious". Sumlin was 51-26 in his career at Texas A&M, but the administration had grew exhausted of Sumlin after his apparent failures to build upon the 11-2 record in his first season at the school.

"I never comment on jobs", Fisher told the Jeff Cameron Show. FSU (5-6) needs a win to become bowl eligible. The team will be coached by associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins. "I know he did an unbelievable job at Florida State". And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do. "I've been waiting to come to this school and it's like really upsetting".

"Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so", Swinney said at an ACC title game news conference. Fisher has spoken about his desire for Florida State to add its own football-only building.
