What they're saying about Jimbo Fisher's departure from Florida State

Jimbo Fisher, the man who coached Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston to a national championship and Heisman Trophy at Florida State, has resigned from his head coaching position with the school to accept the head coaching position at Texas A&M.

Fisher agreed to a guaranteed 10-year, $75 million deal to coach at Texas A&M.

Fisher had hoped to wait until after Florida State's regular season finale before announcing the move.

Trump resurrects Joe Scarborough intern-murder conspiracy theory
Trump and Scarborough had a cordial relationship at one time. "Investigate!" Trump tweeted on Wednesday. Even for Donald Trump , this tweet was a bit unsettling.

Bobby Hauck returned as head football coach at Montana, a program he led to three FCS national championship games during a prior tenure. 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's buyout from Florida State is the sum remaining on the contracts of his assistants who are not retained, which would be in the range of $7 million. "We are extremely pleased by the quality of individuals who have already expressed interest in being the head coach at Florida State University".

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said that Fisher did an unbelievable job.

Fischer signed a contract extension with FSU a year ago, that was supposed to keep him with the team through the 2024-25 season. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do. They'll hire a great coach. We play Texas A&M the next two years. Their last conference title came in 2014, with the season bottoming out at 5-6 heading into this weekend's rescheduled game. I don't have any doubt about that. Sumlin, Oregon's Willie Taggart, South Florida's Charlie Strong and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are options who might be considered.

Information from ESPN's Mark Schlabach and Sam Khan Jr. and The Associated Press was used in this report.

College Football Playoff projections after Week 13 games
Playoff berths appear squarely at stake in the Auburn-Georgia SEC Championship game and the Clemson-Miami ACC Championship game. Saturday's conference championship games, at least three of which will match teams ranked in the CFP top 10, will be pivotal.
