FSU legend Deion Sanders bashes Jimbo Fisher: ‘I’m so upset right now’

It’s been an emotional day for the Florida State community with the announcement that Jimbo Fisher is leaving Tallahassee to take the head coaching position at Texas A&M.

One of the program’s all-time legends had a strong take on the situation.

According to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach, Texas A&M approved a 10-year, $75 million deal for Fisher, who officially resigned from Florida State on Friday.

Fisher spent eight seasons as the coach at Florida State and guided the program to the 2013 national championship.

However, despite being ranked No. 3 heading into this season, Florida State has just five wins and is merely aiming to become bowl eligible.

Former Florida State standout Deion Sanders didn’t hold back on Twitter. The man known as Primetime was a two-time consensus All-American cornerback in 1987 and 1988 under Bobby Bowden.

Sanders apparently didn’t like Fisher taking over for Bowden when the transition occurred in 2010.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame member is pleading with his alma mater to exercise patience as they pursue the program’s third head football coach in the last four decades.

Interestingly enough, Sanders is now being inundated on Twitter with requests to be the next head coach at Florida State.

There’s expected to be a very talented list of candidates for the Seminoles to choose from in their search, including Oregon’s Willie Taggert and Virginia Tech’s Justin Fuente.

While Sanders has no collegiate coaching experience, it appears he would clearly have the support of the Florida State fan base.
