Long-time Florida State Seminoles football coach Jimbo Fisher is leaving Tallahassee to take the head coaching job at Texas A&M.
The Tallhassee Democrat first reported the news early Friday afternoon.
In recent years when The Palm Beach Post had a regular beat writer covering the Seminoles, Fisher allowed us and veteran reporter Tom D'Angelo behind-the-scenes access which produced two memorable stories:
First, in the summer of 2015, Fisher allowed D’Angelo and visual journalist Allen Eyestone to tag along on a visit to his hometown of Clarksburg, W. Va.

Next up, Fisher allowed D’Angelo and Eyestone to join him on a trip to Minneapolis, where his then-10-year-old son Ethan was receiving treatment for an incurable disease.
