Texas A&M reportedly planning to pursue Jimbo Fisher

"I did hear yesterday that there could be some interest from Jimbo Fisher".

Kevin Sumlin won't be Texas A&M's football coach next year, and the Aggies have their sights set on Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher as his successor, according to a USA Today report. But at 6-4 and with losses in three of its last four Southeastern Conference matchups - all three coming at home - the thinking is that Sumlin's tenure is over even if the Aggies win their remaining two games against MS and LSU. But would that be enough to lure Fisher away from Florida State, where he won a national title after the 2013 regular season and is one of the nation's highest-paid, most-secure coaches at around $5.5 million annually?

Still, there are signs of distress in Tallahassee.

Texas A&M is expected to gauge Fisher's interest once the school parts ways with current coach Kevin Sumlin at the end of the season, citing two people familiar with the situation, according to the report.

FSU, which opened the year at No. 3 in the country but now is 3-6 with three games remaining, is in danger of finishing with a losing record for the first time in Fisher's eight seasons as head coach.

Of course, Fisher would be leaving a lot on the table if he chose to move on from Florida State. After a home loss to Louisville last month, Fisher confronted a Seminoles fan who heckled him about his coaching staff.

If Fisher were to leave FSU, he would owe the school at least $7 million in payment for assistant coaches and other football personnel still under contract. Multiple coaches have told Football Scoop's Scott Roussel that Fisher would be "willing to listen" to what Tennessee has to say.
