Jimbo Fisher reacts to Willie Taggart being fired at Florida State
If anyone in the country knows about the background of the Florida State program, it’s former coach Jimbo Fisher even though he’s in his second season at Texas A&M.
“Hate it for the program, himself and all the kids involved, wish them nothing but the best,” Fisher said on the SEC media teleconference. “My time there was wonderful, great, great times. won a national championship, had some great times. Three straight ACC championships, I know they will do well. Wish Willie the best, all those players the best. I still have a great fondness for Florida State and want them to do very well.”
Fisher said he wasn’t qualified to comment on the timing of Taggart’s firing, less than two years into the job.
“I don’t know, you will have to ask the administration, that’s someone else’s call,” Fisher said. “I don’t know what was going on or the inner workings of anything that was going on. I’m the wrong guy to ask on that one.”
Fisher added that injured WR Quartney Davis will be a full-go this week.
Fisher was also asked about playing the Mississippi schools.
“Ole Miss is a three-man team on defense, very similar in some ways, pressuring you off the edge… different on offense,” he said. “MSU is more conventionally, Ole Miss more about running the QB.”
