FSU HC Jimbo Fisher said that his staff will not attend or host a satellite camp this summer.
Fisher feels that Florida State's own camp (which just wrapped on Friday) is more than sufficient. "We satellite right here in Tallahassee," he said. Clemson HC Dabo Swinney is in the same boat as Fisher, saying at the ACC meetings that the Tiger staff would take part in only Clemson's own camp. After the NCAA lifted their bans on satellite camps in April, Alabama HC Saban called their regulation "the wild, wild West." Jun 18 - 1:59 PM

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher told the Palm Beach Post that the possibility of coaching in the NFL is "not something that drives me."

"I love college and I had opportunities to go to pro football as an assistant coach and as a coordinator and I’ve had inquiries as a head coach," Fisher said. We don't blame him for feeling comfortable in his situation. During his six seasons at the helm of the Seminoles, he has won three ACC titles, a national championship and holds an .829 winning-percentage. "I'd love to be here forever and ever," he said. The 50-year-old wouldn't completely rule out taking a potential NFL coaching job in the future, but indicated that it would need to come at the right time and in the right situation if he were to seriously consider it.

Sports Illustrated's Colin Becht wrote that "[i]f there is any team that can keep up with the talent level of Alabama this year, it’s Florida State."

"In many ways, the Seminoles are in a similar position to the Tide: loaded with returning stars but needing to answer some questions at quarterback," Becht noted. The analyst offered one interesting line of logic for why redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois should start over redshirt senior QB Sean Maguire, writing that Francois' "diverse skill set [w]ould mean [junior RB Dalvin] Cook won’t have to carry the offense as much as he did last season." Cook, of course, will be the offensive linchpin at FSU regardless of which quarterback wins the starting job.

ESPN's Jared Shanker deemed Florida State to be the most overrated team in the country.

"A seasoned, future first-round draft pick at quarterback isn’t required to win a championship, as we’ve seen lately," Shanker wrote, "but Florida State’s offensive line and receivers have not yet proven they can shoulder part of the QB’s burden." Overrated or otherwise, Florida State figures to be landing in the top-10 or even top-5 of most preseason national polls. At this early stage, Athlon Sports has FSU ranked as the No. 2 team in the country.

Athlon Sports ranked Florida State No. 2.

Alabama was No. 1. "After winning 10 games in a rebuilding season, FSU is poised to challenge for the title," Athlon noted. "Most of the roster returns intact, but the Seminoles have to find a QB and replace cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Dalvin Cook is one of the frontrunners to win the Heisman." The Seminoles are motivated to end this coming season better than they ended 2015, with a Peach Bowl meltdown against Houston on New Year's Eve.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher and Alabama HC Nick Saban both are in favor of having a college football commissioner.

Presumably, Commissioner Saban's first act would involve knighting Fisher his Vice Commissioner. Kidding aside, a College Football Czar would replace the NCAA as the final governing body of the sport. For that reason alone, consider us sold.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher was involved in a car accident on Saturday.

According to the police report obtained by ESPN, Fisher's vehicle crashed into another at an intersection about a mile outside of Doak Walker Stadium. While Fisher himself did not complain of any injury, the driver of the other vehicle was taken to the hospital after voicing concern over back, hip and shoulder pain. Fault for the accident has not been determined, but it should be noted that wet roads might have played a factor. The police do not suspect that drugs or alcohol were involved for either driver.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher said that he was "not pleased at all" with the team's first spring practice on Wednesday.

Fisher referred to the practice as "awful" and cited "just a lack of enthusiasm." The Seminoles' head honcho entered the spring with optimism, saying earlier in March that he "[liked] where [the team was] going," adding that he's "intrigued." It remains a work in progress, though. Fisher's angling to iron out the team's mental gaffes, but even beyond that, the team's without its starting quarterback, as Sean Maguire is still in the process of recovering from a fractured ankle suffered in the team's Peach Bowl showdown with Houston on New Year's Eve.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher indicated that he's "intrigued" by his team entering spring practice.

"I like where we’re going. This team has me truly intrigued. I like this team. But at the same time there’s still a lot of questions all the way across the board," Fisher said. He noted that much of the focus during spring practice will be related to "mental things." His ultimate goal? "[N]ot just winning, but dominating." Last season, the Seminoles finished out with a 10-3 record (6-2 in conference). Of note, senior QB Sean McGuire (expected to start in 2016) will not participate in spring ball, as he's recovering from a January ankle surgery.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher said that the pre-bowl practice period is "the last chance for [the players] to get better. We’re not through getting better."

"Even though you are in preparation for a bowl, we aren’t in game planning," Fisher said. "We are going back to fundamentals and learning how to play. [The 15 practices are] 15 opportunities for your young players and for the seniors going into the draft." Florida State (10-2) is gearing up to play Houston (12-1) in the Peach Bowl on New Year's Eve. That same venue will host a Playoff semifinal next season, a fact not lost on Fisher. "It’s a very dynamic place to play, one of my favorite places to play," noted the FSU boss, who added that "hopefully" the team would return to the venue to play for raised stakes next season.

The Baton Rouge Advocate reports that intermediaries for Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher and LSU were talking as late as last week.

The Tigers targeted Fisher as a replacement for Les Miles. Those talks stalls, leading LSU president F. King Alexander to acknowledge that the decision to retain Miles wasn’t made until halftime of the Texas A&M game. Whether Alexander balked at the $30 million-plus price tag it would have taken in total to replace Miles with Fisher or whether Fisher backed out, we're back where we started, with both Miles and Fisher staying put.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher announced that he will not leave the school.

"I’m staying right here at Florida State," he said. Reports had Fisher seriously considering jumping to LSU in the event that Les Miles were fired. Whether he turned down the Tigers' overtures or whether those reports were overstating the situation, it's little surprise that Fisher has zero interest in leaving FSU at the moment. "There is no doubt I do (have one of the best jobs in America)," Fisher said. "This is a tremendous place. The Florida State people have been wonderful. This is a great place to live, a great place to coach; we’ve got great players, great tradition and great history. This is a tremendous job and a heckuva place. I love it here." Fisher is the fifth highest-paid coach in the country.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher said that he has "no comment" about LSU's current coaching situation.

Fisher not only refused to comment on the situation, he went so far as to call the speculation unfair. "I don't speak about jobs," he said. "It's unfair to the players that are there, the players that are here, the coaches there and here." On Monday, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad that there's a "very good possibility" that LSU will exercise their $15 million buyout on HC Les Miles in the coming weeks. Winter's coming for the CFB coaching landscape, and it's set to be a whopper of an offseason, with multiple high-profile gigs available from USC to Miami to (maybe) LSU.

Florida State added Charleston Southern to their 2016 non-conference schedule.

Charleston Southern was the final piece to the Seminoles' non-conference schedule for next season. They'll play that game on September 10. In addition to adding that FCS cupcake to their 2016 menu, they're also set to play Ole Miss (appetizer), South Florida (mid-meal cupcake?) and Florida (main course). When last they played Charleston Southern in 2011, they won 62-10.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher called now-former Miami HC Al Golden "a good coach."

"I thought he did a good job, had good players. You don’t know why things happen. I’m sure he’ll find another job and do a great job," said Fisher, who held a 5-0 record against Golden prior to the latter's dismissal from Miami HC duties on Sunday. Fisher then turned philosophical in regards to the current state of coaching security. "The patience is getting less and less. It’s getting more like pro ball every day. Media coverage, scrutiny, money, all the things that go into it. I hate it for anybody." Fisher might hate it, but we're guessing he's happy to answer questions about Al Golden if it means fewer questions about the ending of the Seminoles' disastrous 22-16 loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday.
