Fisher addressed the incident in his post-practice press conference - FSU is playing Louisiana-Monroe a game that was postponed due to Hurricane Irma to start the season. According to Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com, Fisher is expected to be introduced as the new Aggies head coach on Monday.

ESPN reported that Florida State would announce Fisher's resignation Friday afternoon.

With Fisher gone, FSU will be entering into the coaching carousel for the first time in 41 years when Bobby Bowden was hired in 1976. He made $5.7 million this season as part of an extension he signed in December 2016.


"Obviously, he feels like it's the right move for him, I don't know", Swinney said when asked.

The 4-7 Florida Gators football team does not have a lot to be overly pleased about this season, but they're certainly in a much better place than state rival Florida State. Fisher will receive more guaranteed money than he was due at Florida State. It's been a great, competitive journey. I've known him forever, when I was at Alabama and he was at Auburn. Last Sunday, following the Aggies' 45-21 loss to LSU, Kevin Sumlin was dismissed after six seasons. However, should they be tired of the actions of the head coach in recent weeks towards his then own fanbase? We have the player and fan reaction. "I don't know how it got out", A sobbing Fisher said.

Names circulating as possibilities for the Florida State post include Oregon's Willie Taggart and South Florida's Charlie Strong.
