While Texas A&M's Board of Regents met on Thursday night to discuss the hiring of a new head football coach, Florida State's Jimbo Fisher told reporters he plans to coach the Seminoles' rescheduled game against Louisiana-Monroe.

On ESPNU SiriusXM radio Thursday, Fisher said he was not going to talk about potential jobs.

Things reached a crescendo this week - with many outlets reporting that Fisher was not expected to return to Florida State. Clemson's Dabo Swinney is now behind Saban ($8.5 million this year, average of $6.75 million over eight years). Florida State is trying to avoid its first losing season since 1976.

Fortunately, A&M has the facilities to make Jimbo a happy man for as long as he's in College Station, but the way he handled the Florida State resignation has been a nightmare.

Fisher took over for legend Bobby Bowden prior to the 2010 season after spending three seasons with the program as offensive coordinator/coach-in-waiting. They'll hire a great coach. "He'll still be a thorn in our side". Texas A&M was 51-26 under Sumlin, but the Aggies were just 25-23 against Southeastern Conference teams and wrapped up a third straight.500 finish in SEC play. The school's only national title came in 1939. Oregon's Willie Taggart, former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin and South Florida's Charlie Strong are options who might be considered.

Information from ESPN's Mark Schlabach and Sam Khan and The Associated Press was used in this report.
