Fisher won a national championship at Florida State in 2013 but has not reached the same heights since then. This year the Seminoles lost starting quarterback Deondre Francois in the season-opening game. Heading into Saturday’s game against UL-Monroe, Florida State is 5-6 on the season.
Texas A&M fired Kevin Sumlin on Sunday after going 7-5 this season. Sumlin received a buyout of $10.4 million. At Florida State, Fisher made $5.7 million, making him the second highest coach in the ACC and the sixth highest in the country.
