Jimbo Fisher brought Florida State a BCS national championship in the 2013 season, but it is a matter of fact that he was not the star coach on the FSU campus during his time in Tallahassee. Legendary baseball coach Mike Martin was a Seminole skipper from 1980-2019. On Wednesday night, Fisher cited Martin as an example of learning from other coaches.
TexAgs shared a Fisher quote from his weekly radio show. When asked to learn from other coaches, Fisher pointed to Martin.
“You learn from everyone,” Fisher recalled. “One of my best friends in the world was Mike Martin, the most winning baseball coach in college in history. I sat right next to the grave and watched him.”
Fisher did not specify if he was in the FSU dugout when Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston was also a member of Martin’s baseball team. Martin, often referred to by broadcasters as his jersey number “11”, retired with the record 2029-736-4.
