Five Takes: How will Jimbo Fisher be remembered?


Fisher reiterated how much he loved his time at Florida State, but what he said about "oneness" reiterated a sentiment he expressed in his opening statement.

After Fisher's departure from the program Friday, Seminoles players and fans rallied around longtime position coach Odell Haggins, the longest tenured coach on FSU's staff who was named interim coach.

"In the short amount of time that i've been here... the people here are incredible", Fisher said. He had her pose with him and his boys for his first family photo as head coach at Texas A&M.

The game marked the season finales for both teams after being rescheduled from its original September 9 date due to Hurricane Irma. FSU Athletics Director Stan Wilcox says he wants the search for a new head coach to be quick, but thorough. It marked the end of a somewhat surprising divorce between Fisher and Florida State, after the coach went 83-23 with one national title in his eight years at the school.

"We've got to get caught up", Fisher said in September.

"It was a no-brainer", Fisher said Monday morning in College Station.

Of the over 80 wins during his time leading FSU football, which ones were the cream of the crop when it came to the Jimbo Fisher era? "When you get an offer like he got, you can't turn those things down".

Jimbo Fisher made a somewhat surprising decision when he chose to leave his job at Florida State to take on a new challenge at Texas A&M, but those who are familiar with the relationship between Fisher and his former bosses saw it coming. While speaking with reporters, he appeared to remove all doubt that he was not seeing eye-to-eye with the administration at Florida State.

FSU running back Jacques Patrick, of Orlando, recaps the Seminoles' 38-22 win over the Florida Gators on Saturday. Fisher seemed to hint that wasn't the case at Florida State.
