Texas A&M approves mammoth contract for Jimbo Fisher

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College won 35-3.

A private flight is scheduled to leave Tallahassee early Friday for College Station, Texas. "We appreciate all he has done for our program and wish him and his family great success moving forward".

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

Fisher led Florida State Universities football team for 8 seasons, during which he scored the school three straight ACC Championship titles. His new contract at Texas A&M reportedly comes with a roughly $2 million pay raise. "I know he did an unbelievable job at Florida State". Their last conference title came in 2014, with the season bottoming out at 5-6 heading into this weekend's rescheduled game. Chancellor Beverly Davenport said Currie had been suspended. "We just want him to win a national championship". He is the first coach since Johnny Majors left Pitt for Tennessee back in 1977 to leave a school he won a national championship at for another school.

Fisher will not coach FSU's regular-season finale, it was also confirmed, with longtime defensive line coach Odell Haggins serving as interim head coach for Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

"I never comment on jobs", Fisher told the Jeff Cameron Show. I am confident we will fill the position very soon.

Francois' redshirt sophomore season ended prematurely when the quarterback suffered a season-ending knee injury in September.

"Kevin's tenure included some remarkable achievements and he leaves our program as one of the winningest football coaches in our storied history", Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement. "We are still practicing and having fun".

Students were talking about who they heard were potential new coaches but many students expressed frustration and disappointment in Fisher's decision.
