HOUSTON — Jimbo Fisher has resigned from his position at Florida State to become the head coach at Texas A&M University, according to ESPN. Fisher will not coach in FSU’s upcoming game against Louisiana-Monroe, multiple sources confirmed.

ESPN is reporting Texas A&M officials approved a 10-year, $75 million dollar contract for Fisher. Fisher will be the second highest paid coach in college football, behind Alabama’s Nick Saban.

Fisher led Florida State to the national championship in 2013.
