Students react to news of Jimbo's departure from FSU football

Students react to news of Jimbo's departure from FSU football

FSU has an interim coach for that game, because Jimbo Fisher left on Friday to take the head coaching job at Texas A&M.

The Seminoles beat Louisiana-Monroe 42-10 Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee. The Noles will win and move to 6-6, extending their bowl streak to 36 years in an otherwise bad season.

Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois seems to be unhappy about - presumably - Jimbo Fisher's lack of communication. The Seminoles won the 2013 national championship and were ranked in the final AP poll in each of his first seven campaigns.

The chairman and CEO of Mayfair Investments LLC is Robert L. Albritton, a 1971 alumnus of Texas A&M and a member of the school's Board of Regents.

It has been an interesting season for the Florida State Seminoles. "I wish him the very best".

"President Thrasher and I have worked together through this challenging period while coach Fisher was making a decision, and I appreciate the cooperation, support and leadership he has provided", athletic director Stan Wilcox said.

On Thursday, Miller called on civilians to join law enforcement in the land and air search for 3-year-old Mariah Woods. The FBI later said the woman in the picture did not have any connection to their ongoing investigation to find Mariah.

I would tell our supporters and fans the same thing that I told our team: "we will hire a head coach that will lead Florida State to ACC and National Championships".

Florida State had the running game going as they totaled 302 yards between Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do.

Texas A&M has invested heavily in facilities the past five years, including a football operations center. I don't get in to the rumors and the rumor mill. Sumlin, Oregon's Willie Taggart, South Florida's Charlie Strong and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are options who might be considered. "I've been waiting to come to this school and it's like really upsetting".

Fisher spent the past 11 seasons with the Seminoles, the last eight as head coach.

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