9 College Football Coaches Who Are Destined for the NFL – Bleacher Report

Jimbo Fisher has built something special at Florida State. The Nick Saban disciple has done an excellent job with “the process,” rebuilding the Seminoles into a national power following the ugly end of Bobby Bowden’s tenure.

In six seasons at FSU, Fisher is 68-14 with five seasons of at least 10 victories, a national championship, three ACC titles and a College Football Playoff berth. Under Fisher, FSU runs pro-style offense and has fielded excellent defenses. It has attracted the NFL’s attention.

Fisher told Pro Football Talk Live (h/t NFL.com) last spring that he’d been contacted regarding an NFL job but had no interest at the time.

“I never say never,” he said. “I’m not one of those guys that that’s my end-all ambition. But in this business, you never say never.”

That’s not exactly an iron-clad denial. Fisher has had tremendous success at FSU, and the Seminoles will be a talented bunch again in 2016 and beyond. But wondering what you can do with a tougher challenge is natural. Would he say no again if the NFL called with a Brinks truck of cash? Never say never, right, Jimbo?
