Norvell agrees to leave Memphis, become Florida State head coach

Florida State has zeroed in on Memphis' Mike Norvell to be its next football coach, according to multiple reports.

Norvell dodged all Florida State-related questions following the Tigers' 29-24 win over Cincinnati in the American Athletic Conference Championship game Saturday. The coach said he plans to lead the Tigers in the Cotton Bowl.

Norvell is 38-15 in four season at the helm of Memphis and has won three straight AAC West division championships. Behind a high-octane offense that features freak athletes at running back, Norvell's Memphis team has cruised to an 12-1 mark and will earn the Group of Five spot in a New Year's Six bowl. The school has not yet confirmed if Norvell is that coach.

An official announcement on the hiring could come as soon as Sunday.
