It could be an awkward day on the sidelines of Doak Campbell Stadium Saturday as Florida State, hoping to keep its bowl streak alive, take on Louisiana-Monroe in what could well be Jimbo Fisher’s last game in charge of the Seminoles.
Per a report, Fisher is expected to accept the head coaching position at Texas A&M, but the coach himself said on Thursday that he will still be the coach of the Seminoles on Saturday , per Tomahawk Nation. Fisher stated that he had no thoughts of not being on the sidelines.
The game against the Warhawks was originally scheduled for Sept. 9 but was postponed due to Hurricane Irma. With the Seminoles having a down season at 5-6, rescheduling the game was the only possibly way for the bowl streak, which is at 35 years currently, to continue.
On Wednesday, a fan was ejected from Fisher’s radio show after asking about the coach’s loyalty when it comes to Florida State.
