Jimbo Fisher and Florida State did not end their working relationship on a great note as Fisher seemingly flew away in the night to take the Texas A&M job. And he did it to take over a program that had only winning seasons under Kevin Sumlin while getting quite handsomely paid. Now, he can’t even bring himself to give the name of his former employer.
He really hit them with the “other place” treatment even though they won a National Championship together and had some pretty great moments. He had the chance to recruit Dalvin Cook and coach one of the best running backs the school has ever seen and of course had some other great players to coach like Jameis Winston and Devonta Freeman.
The insane contract and the way Fisher left Tallahassee has led to a few people taking a swipe at him and his 10-year, $75 million contract including Florida State president John Thrasher. Even Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith decided to take his shot too.
