Aggies Announce Hiring Of Jimbo Fisher


If any Florida State fans remain upset over how coach Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M, his introductory news conference probably didn't do much to smooth over hurt feelings.

There's no doubt that Jimbo Fisher made his mark at Florida State. "It's always a great day to be an Aggie and we're happy to welcome Jimbo to the family". Do us a favor, Jim - don't come back to Tallahassee for any reunions.

Since Friday's announcement that he was in fact leaving for Texas A&M, those in garnet and gold have been dealing with their emotions on the matter.

Chairman of the Texas A & M System Board of Regents Charles Schwartz: "We are excited to welcome Coach Fisher to Aggieland and to make one more Aggie convert".

Qualcomm Denounces Broadcom's 'Hostile Takeover' Bid
Broadcom announced its intention to nominate a slate of 11 independent individuals for election to Qualcomm's Board of Directors. Broadcom did not raise the $ 70 per share offer price on Monday - which valued Qualcomm at $103 billion.

Fisher, who agreed to a 10-year, $75 million contract with the Aggies, cited his relationship with athletic director Scott Woodward and the school's resources as the main factors in his decision. "That's where we want to be and what we want to be and advance to the national championship and how we do it. I think all the ingredients are here".

So, let us get this straight for a second - FSU football is home to a new indoor practice facility, new locker rooms, meeting rooms, coaches rooms, player lounge, film rooms, a new champions club section to the stadium and plans are in the works for the football only facility Fisher wouldn't shut up about while the team had a 29 game winning streak that included three ACC titles and a national crown.

Fisher will not coach in the Aggies' Belk Bowl game against Wake Forest in Charlotte, N.C., on December 29. "Jimbo is among the best football coaches in America and a ideal fit for A&M", Woodward said in a statement. Woodward worked in LSU's athletic department while Fisher was the Tigers' offensive coordinator in the early 2000s. His experience in the Southeastern Conference (SEC); his knowledge of the game; his recruiting acumen, and his management skills will allow him to achieve the highest levels of success when matched with what A&M offers. Texas A&M has its man.
