Texas A&M officially introduces Jimbo Fisher as new head coach

Texas A&M Football: Aggies Announce Hiring Of Jimbo Fisher

Florida State improved to.500 for the first time this season, and is eligible to extend the nation's longest bowl streak to 36 years after a 42-10 victory over Louisiana Monroe on Saturday afternoon in Doak Campbell Stadium.

"I'm extremely grateful to be here at Texas A&M, and this is without a doubt one of college football's greatest sports venues and richest traditions", new Aggies Football Head Coach Jimbo Fisher announced.

The game marked the season finales for both teams after being rescheduled from its original September 9 date due to Hurricane Irma.

"That's the objective", Fisher said.

OR coach Willie Taggart, a Bradenton native and former USF coach, is among few known candidates for the job.

Before the Texas A&M praise, Fisher was gracious in thanking former FSU coach Bobby Bowden, who hired him as an offensive coordinator in 2007 before he replaced Bowden as head coach in 2010. "We have to move as fast as we possibly can".

"It was a no-brainer", Fisher said Monday morning in College Station. He led the Seminoles to the national championship in 2013, three Atlantic Coast Conference titles and four ACC Atlantic Division crowns. "When you get an offer like he got, you can't turn those things down". "I say this diligently, your expectations will never be greater than mine".

Despite expressing his affinity for his old job, Fisher repeatedly praised Texas A&M's vision and commitment to its football program during his introductory conference - two points of contention he challenged at Florida State while providing no comment on his commitment to the Seminoles program while negotiating his new deal last week.

As Fisher approached the podium for the first time to speak since he resigned from Florida State last Friday, he greeted those in attendance with an resonating "Howdy". Fisher seemed to hint that wasn't the case at Florida State.
