Jimbo Fisher leaves FSU for Texas A&M

Rumors are also spreading as to why Fisher chose to leave the university in the first place.

FSU has an interim coach for that game, because Jimbo Fisher left on Friday to take the head coaching job at Texas A&M.

According to FlightAware.com, a twin-engine propeller plane is scheduled to depart Tallahassee International Airport at 4:45 a.m. and arrive in College Station at 6:17 a.m. local time.

Fisher said Thursday that he expects to be on the sideline Saturday for the regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe.

Fisher told university president John Thrasher yesterday that he was resigning to accept Texas A&M's offer.

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.

Mike Gundy, who affirmed his commitment to Oklahoma State this week following reported interest from Tennessee, got a $675,000 pay increase, bumping his salary to $5 million per year.

IOS 11.1.1 Jailbreak Will Take Longer to Release
The hallmark feature for US users is Apple Pay for iMessage, but that service reportedly won't go live until at least Monday. It was noted that folks on the iOS 11.2 beta didn't have the issue and Apple rushed it out to the masses because of that.

On Friday, Fisher handed in his resignation to Florida State officials.

Student Sam Moreland said, "I've been a fan since I was like 8-years-old".

Now that Fisher has chose to bolt, see how Twitter reacted to the news. A school representative quickly took his microphone away and ushered him out of the room, pushing him in the back at least twice.

Fisher previously spent time at Auburn (1993-1998) and LSU (2000-06) as an assistant coach, making this a return to the SEC.

Opening the season as the nation's No. 3 team, Florida State never recovered after losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a knee injury. The Seminoles won the 2013 national championship and were ranked in the final AP poll in each of his first seven campaigns.

The Seminoles have struggled since 2013 Heisman Trophy victor Jameis Winston left school early to become the No. 1 overall pick in the National Football League draft. They are 19-12 in their last 31 games, including 10-10 in the ACC.
