Jimbo Fisher would never say never about an NFL job

When it comes to coaching in the NFL, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is taking the "never say never" approach and Mike Florio talks about why Tampa Bay makes a lot of sense as a potential landing spot for Fisher.

More than a year ago, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said on PFT Live that he had recently heard from an NFL team that was interested in interviewing him for a head coaching job. Fisher wasn’t interested in leaving Florida State then, and he isn’t now either, but he wouldn’t rule it out some day.

You can’t ever say never in this business,” Fisher told the Palm Beach Post.

So what would make Fisher make the leap? The right offer.

“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. “It’s got to be the right organization at the right time and the right situation if you’re ever interested. We have a great situation where I’m at. It’s not something that drives me.”

Fisher is one of the most successful coaches in college football, and he has a knack for working with quarterbacks. No one should be surprised if some NFL owner decides to make Fisher the right offer.
