10 years 75 million is the rumor going around to be announced Monday.
He better win. LOL
Yes and if after four seasons they aren't happy will they owe for the remainder?
I’m all for it. Let Jimbo be an annual pain in Saban’s ass.
But, of course, Jimbo ain’t leaving this time either, so the point is moot.
You believe he stays at fsu? Conventional wisdom is that if he's going to talk he knows what the offer is and will accept. Maybe he has to go hoping fsu counters. I don't believe they can come close enough to $7 mill(if that's the offer) to keep him though.
75 mill for Dumbo. smdh
All he's proven at FSU is he can't win anything without Jameis Winston. Amazing that anyone would offer that kind of money.
Agents making $$$$$$$..
There is a plane going from A&M to Tally tomorrow morning apparently. I'd assume that's the offer going to him
My thoughts exactly. That is just purely insane.
Jimmy Sexton? Why is the image of him for me basically a steal of George Lucas's Jabba the Hut?
They'll fly him over there in a C-47 Skytrain and make him jump from 250 feet into Kyle Field if he wants the $75 million. They do love their military traditions.
What a tremendous waste of cash.
Win-win for UF. Late coach to FSU hurts FSU recruiting and makes SEC West a harder division for Saban getting him to quit sooner.
Also ties up the big Texas A&M money in the coach that Winston made. Winston is gone. TX A&M paid 17 million in total buyout payments to Sumlin and FSU. UF paid 1/2 of that at 8 million in buyout payments to Mac and Miss st.
Aren’t we giving $6.5mm plus extras and we used some extra funds for assistants (probably at Mullen’s request)?
I am hoping that Texas A&M drags the announcement out until Monday and any viable coach FSU could get is quickly re-upped at their current school.
I doubt it could get as bad as Knoxville in Tally, but I can ask Santa for an early Christmas gift.
Maybe, the the cynic in me says he is leaving for other reasons.
It's a smart move by A&M. Did you see how Jimbo's first-year QB, fresh off the Muck, looked against us. Stats weren't great, but he looked like a poised QB who was operating a system that made sense. I love Feleipe, but our guy didn't look poised and surely didn't appear to be in a system that made sense.
Jimbo is underappreciated for how much he did to stabilize an FSU program that had cratered under Bobby Bowden. It wasn't easy to come in and work under a legend who didn't understand or accept what had happened to his program. Jimbo managed all of that. Then when he took over, some Bowden loyalists hated on him and still hate him. I think this is largely what has upset him so much. He did the impossible: come after a legend and succeed. They don't fully appreciate what Jimbo did for them in Tallahassee, they truly don't. He's probably going to be in the championship hunt at A&M.
This is a dicey time for FSU. If they don't get Willie Taggart, they could be in serious trouble. They aren't the flagship, they aren't the team in talent-rich Miami, and for the first time ever they aren't dominant in the ACC.
They have to get Willie Taggart or all bets are off.
