Fisher leaves ahead of FSU's final game of the season scheduled for Saturday. FSU (5-6) needs a win to become bowl eligible.

Florida State is reportedly already vetting candidates to replace Fisher. His annual salary at FSU placed him near the top of all college football coaches, and his hiring is a clear sign that Texas A&M won't settle for being a second-tier school in the conference.

One former FSU quarterback, Danny Kanell, tweeted, reminding Florida State to be thankful for the years Jimbo spent here and to get excited for the future.

"Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden", Florida State president John Thrasher said in a statement.

"You know our team has a lot of potentials and he's just kind of giving up because of some easy money and a lot of pressure", said FSU student Will Singleton. I've known him forever, when I was at Alabama and he was at Auburn.

He said: "North Korea will be risky in about nine months or so because then two things are going to happen at the same time". Mr Lavrov said Ms Haley's call for the world to isolate North Korea was wrong.

"Jimbo's a great football coach and my hope would be that he stays at Florida State University, but if he has other opportunities that are more valuable to him and his family, then I certainly understand that", Thrasher said.

In the interim, I have appointed associate head coach and defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins to serve as our head coach versus ULM. I am confident we will fill the position very soon.

Florida State issued official statement's on Fisher's departure on Friday. We play Texas A&M the next two years. They'll hire a great coach. Sumlin, Oregon's Willie Taggart, South Florida's Charlie Strong and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente are options who might be considered. The school's only national title came in 1939.

Fisher was 83-23 in his eight seasons in Tallahassee, including one national title that he won with Jameis Winston in 2013.
