FSU officials are urging coach Jimbo Fisher to make a decision one way another on whether he’ll leave the program for Texas A&M, according to Noles247.com.
According to the report, officials have grown tired of waiting for Fisher to make a decision, especially considering three Seminoles recruits decommitted from the program in the wake of an uncertain future at FSU. He has reportedly been Texas A&M’s top target since its firing of Kevin Sumlin.

Noles247 also reports FSU officials expect Fisher to leave the team for A&M. That would corroborate an earlier report this week that suggested officials already have a plan in place to procure a replacement for Fisher. Oregon’s Willie Taggart would likely be one of the school’s top choices if that were to happen.
Some form of announcement is reportedly being discussed on Thursday. Coincidentally, A&M regents scheduled a Thursday meeting as well to discuss its own football program.
The 2017 season is Fisher’s eighth at Florida State, where he has coached the Seminoles to a 83-23 record, three ACC titles, the 2013 national championship and 6 seasons of at least 10 wins. The Seminoles’ 5-6 season this year was their worst with Fisher at the helm, and the worst for FSU since Bobby Bowden’s first season, in 1976.
