Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher experssed his affection for Florida State on Wednesday night when asked on his radio show if he'd consider leaving Tallahassee for Baton Rouge.

“I’m happy where I’m at,” Fisher said, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. “I’m very happy here. I’ve got a great job. I love this place. It is a great place and it has been very good to me.

“Hopefully I will end up being very good to it.”

On Nov. 17, The Advocate reported there were "strong indications" that LSU coach Les Miles was coaching for his job against Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas A&M.

Miles will complete his 11th regular season at the school Saturday night when the Tigers (7-3, 4-3 Southeastern) meet Texas A&M (8-3, 4-3) at Tiger Stadium. Reports of his shaky future with the program turned his own weekly radio show into an emotional outpouring from fans.

Some live questioners were brought to tears at the event at TJ Ribs on Acadian Thruway.

Miles deflected questions about his job status during two interview opportunities with reporters on Wednesday. He declined to defend himself or his record during the Southeastern Conference teleconference in the morning and then, in a post-practice interview Wednesday night, said he hopes to be at LSU “another 11 years.”
