From @abellwillring: Would love to hear your thoughts on the assistant coaching turnover at FSU and what you expect.
I've heard it's been a really rocky road inside the Florida State program under Jimbo Fisher of late. He's had significant turnover on the staff and lost several key assistants on both sides of the ball. It also wouldn't surprise me at all if FSU lost the team's top recruiter, James Coley, who has the title of offensive coordinator.
I was a bit surprised that Fisher didn't go with a proven defensive coordinator to replace Mark Stoops. I know there were some big-time DCs in consideration before Fisher opted for 38-year-old Jeremy Pruitt from Alabama. Clearly, Fisher wanted to add more "Saban guys" to his operation by bringing Pruitt and Sal Sunseri to FSU.
Fisher has become even more hands on in the past month with his staff, I'm told, and this comes in the wake of what has to be seen as a disappointing 2012 season. While FSU did make the Orange Bowl, the Noles, again, stubbed their toe against an unranked opponent (N.C. State) and then lost at home by 11 to rival Florida. And this was supposed to be the season in which FSU would make a run at the BCS title. At this point -- three seasons in the Jimbo Fisher tenure -- it's still hard to say whether he's the guy who can lead the Noles back to greatness. I feel like there are more reasons for skepticism about that than there were just three months ago.
What he forgets to mention is that they all left for promotions....
