According to a report from Mark Schlabach of ESPN, Texas A&M approved a 10-year $75 million deal for Fisher, who officially left Florida State for Texas A&M on Friday.

With Fisher an Aggie, the coaching search madness of the 2017-18 offseason turns its eyes to Florida State, which now has to hire a head coach.

Fisher goes to a program that has lofty hopes amid a drought: Texas A&M last won a conference championship in 1998, when it was in the Big 12. Florida State also needs a win on Saturday and in a bowl game to avoid its first losing season since 1976. Odell Haggins coached the Seminoles to the victory. His new contract at Texas A&M reportedly comes with a roughly $2 million pay raise.

Fisher will be introduced on Monday in College Station. He was making $5.7 million this season, sixth-highest.

Fisher led Florida State Universities football team for 8 seasons, during which he scored the school three straight ACC Championship titles. "The excitement around Florida State is indisputable, and a tremendous opportunity awaits whoever is chosen as our new head football coach".

For search and rescue operation in Kanyakumari, the India Coast Guard have deployed 2 offshore patrol vessels in the area. Squally weather has been forecast for towns along the south Kerala coast with winds up to 55 kmph blowing.

Now that Fisher has made a decision to bolt, see how Twitter reacted to the news.

After a loss to Louisville on October 21, Fisher got into a verbal altercation with a fan who kept yelling that it is time to hire new assistant coaches.

Sumlin went 51-26 in six seasons with the Aggies.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said that Fisher did an unbelievable job.

Texas A&M has invested heavily in facilities the past five years, including a football operations center. Taggart, who grew up in Bradenton, Florida, went 7-5 in his first season at Oregon.
