Fisher cocked his head and said with a laugh, "I tried not to, I was trying to coach."
A recent contract extension that could keep Fisher at Florida State through 2018 at about $4.1 million per year didn't end the speculation. The questions should end now that Louisville coach Charlie Strong has accepted the job.
Said Fisher: "I went against Charlie a lot of years in the SEC. Charlie's an excellent coach. A very good guy. Good recruiter. I think he'll do an excellent job."
