Jimbo Fisher was the answer to Florida State’s qualms after the retirement of longtime head coach Bobby Bowden. During his first year with the Seminoles, Fisher put up the school’s first 10-win season since 2003 and became the winningest first-year coach of the program. Fisher’s 2013 season with the Seminoles made a statement, as they set a national record for total points scored in a season at 723, remained first in the country in scoring defense (allowing 12.1 points per game) and topped it all off with the program’s third national championship. In Fisher’s eight years in Tallahassee, he accumulated four Atlantic division titles, three conference championships and four AP Top 10 finishes. Fisher was offered a 10-year, $75 million contract to coach for the Texas A&M Aggies in 2017, where he has resided since.
