Where will Florida State turn if Jimbo Fisher leaves?

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher has reportedly been offered the Texas A&M job, but at this point, it's unclear if he'll take it. If he does leave the Seminoles, the school will have to scramble to find its next head coach in one of the craziest coaching carousel environments we've ever seen.

Josh Newberg at 247 Sports is ahead of the pack, reporting that Charlie Strong and Willie Taggart would be among the initial candidates.

Strong, who was let go by Texas last year, has done a stellar job with South Florida this year. Taggart is in his first year at Oregon, though many believe the Florida native would like to return to his roots.
