TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Jimbo Fisher is reportedly leaving Florida State University to succeed Kevin Sumlin as Texas A&M University's new head football coach.
The 52-year-old West Virginia native will not coach the Seminoles in their final regular-season game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.
Sumlin was fired Nov. 26 after six seasons at A&M.
Fisher, who led the Seminoles to the 2013 national championship and three Atlantic Coast Conference titles, was 83-23 in eight seasons at FSU, including a 14-2 record against rivals Miami and Florida.
Aggies athletic director Scott Woodward worked with Fisher at LSU, where Fisher served as offensive coordinator when the Tigers won a national title in 2003.
Fisher was 10-2 against SEC teams during his FSU tenure.
