Jimbo Fisher suddenly finds himself on a warm seat in Tallahassee, as the Florida State Seminoles have fallen completely off the map during the 2017 season. In some ways, that may seem silly given that the ‘Noles lost their starting quarterback in the season opener and Fisher, of course, owns a national title while at the helm at Florida State. However, there are expectations at the program that haven’t been met and, in short, nobody is pleased right now.
With that in mind, Houston Chronicle staff writer Brent Zwerneman hopped on ESPN’s The Paul Finebaum Show on Monday and floated a potential suitor for Fisher. That suitor? The Texas A&M Aggies.
There has been some positive mojo for A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, but the Aggies now sit at 5-4 after two straight losses in lopsided fashion. That has placed Sumlin right back in the fire and, well, Fisher would be a big and appealing name in the event that Sumlin finds himself on the unemployment line.
Fisher has a record of 81-22 since he became the head coach in 2010 in Tallahassee and has three ACC titles. He does have experience coaching in the SEC though with stops at LSU and Auburn before FSU. It might be difficult to envision Fisher on the sideline in College Station but crazier things have happened.
