Since Mack Brown decided to resign as head coach of the Texas Longhorns over the weekend, a lot of big names have come up when discussing Brown’s replacement.
Logical choices like Charlie Strong of the Louisville Cardinals, Art Briles of the Baylor Bears and James Franklin of the Vanderbilt Commodores emerged.
Another name that has been consistently brought up with Texas is Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher. Fisher took over a mess back in 2010 and has gone 44-10 in four seasons with the Seminoles, including two ACC championship. Fisher’s Seminole are 13-0 and will play the Auburn Tigers in the BCS title game.
On Wednesday when the Seminoles got back to practice, Fisher didn’t exactly refute any rumors, he simply wouldn’t talk about them.
“I’m going to talk about our team, that’s all I’m going to talk about. I ain’t getting into all the rumors,” Fisher said following Wednesday’s practice, via Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s unfair to those teams and our team. We’re planning here, getting ready for a game, that’s where I plan on being, right here getting ready for a game.
“That’s my soul focus and that is it.”
